Are the 4.7 μF caps polarized?

The assembly instructions say the 4.7 μF caps "are not polarized, so please ignore the +/- marking on the PCB."
Yet those that came with my kit have a longer leg and a shorter leg. Aren’t they polarized whatsoever ?

Could someone please confirm that the longer lead must go in the hole marked with a plus sign on the PCB ?

Thanks.

Unless there is a white stripe on the side of the cap, it is not polarized :slight_smile:

If you want to be safe, treat it like it was polarized, it won’t make a difference ^^

+1 on the “treat it like it was polarized, it won’t make a difference”.

My brain tells me it doesn’t matter, but my heart always convinces my hands to put the long lead in the hole with the plus…
