Just tested the USB key in my laptop and it’s perfect. These are the same type of capacitors mostly found on videocards, and being a solid device they don’t leak or burst years down the road. There’s an interesting back story behind the wide adoption of polymer capacitors on higher end motherboards, if you have time read this PCSTATS article It’s actually a rather complicated story revolving around industry plwtinum A clever solution for sure, and one that most motherboard manufacturers have embraced as a quiet way of managing the heat from chipsets.
