The clips are designed to accept component leads and solid hookup wire (22 AWG is a great size) and provide good electrical connections for lowfrequency, low-current work. Kits are available that contain a variety of wire lengths and colors with prestripped ends, prebent at 90 degrees for use with solderless breadboards. A less expensive alternative is to buy some spools of solid 22 AWG wire, cut it to length, and strip the ends as you work. Bending the ends at 90 degrees is not necessary, and you can just poke the stripped wire ends into the breadboard.

In this circumstance, if the cap exhibited excessive leakage, it might, for example, never charge to a necessary threshold voltage. To appreciate what capacitor leakage is like, just imagine putting a 10M or lower resistor in parallel with the cap you’re trying to charge. The leakage is always trying to discharge the cap whether you want it to or not. Aluminum electrolytic capacitors come in values from submicrofarad to several farads (yep, I said farads). They are often used for localized stabilization of voltage levels on PC boards in the 10μF to 100μF range and come in values large enough (tens of thousands of μF) to be used as the main filtering caps in power supplies.

Let the soldering iron heat up before beginning. Dampen the solder station’s cleaning sponge by first wetting it and then squeezing the excess water (and any solder balls) out of it over the trash can. Damp is good but soaking wet is…not so good.
