    Capacitors warming in mains power supply

    I built a simple, direct-coupled mains power supply. I wish to get on my load about 6V and 20mA DC. My mains is 220V AC. I used a 1uf 250V capacitor, a bridge, a resistor, and two 100uF tantalum capacitors. The 1uf /250V capacitor (NP) works well, and I got about 7VDC. However, I need a...
