    Teapo SJ has much better ripple current and can handle more heat, but I would have to say SC is better for most PSU's. The only reason being that I think the SJ series has an impedance that is pretty low, *some* PSU's might not like it. I think in the much more modern designs, they would benefit from the SJ caps. So it depends on the design of the PSU.

    Just looking at a basic comparison between 2200uF 16V caps:

    SJ: 13mmx25mm, 2770mA ripple current, 0.018 ESR
    SC: 13mmx25mm, 2000mA ripple current, 0.028 ESR

    Not a huge difference in ESR, but some power supplies are picky.

    Just use CapXon. They're good for all applications.

    Even if you have a single +12V rail.
