Xbee Adapter with wrong capacitor

by nathan_kia on Sat Aug 25, 2012 12:20 am

Hi Guys,
I have received my adafruit xbee adapters today and I want to assemble it. However, when I was checking the part list from here : http://www.ladyada.net/make/xbee/parts.html
, I realized both adapters that I have received contain 47uF capacitors instead of 100uF as mentioned in the part list of the website.

because both of them has the 47uF instead of 100uF, I thought maybe the design has been changed.

so I am wondering if I solder the 47uF to the circuit board, does it work?

Hi, 47uF is fine! We went with a smaller capacitor so it will fit Pro Xbees better - it works just as well so keep going!
