    Default JapCaps™

    Guess my previous post was off-topic.

    Found major japanese cap company plants are mostly domestic, but forum saids they are mostly made in China. Which is right?

    Both is true. Some are also made in Taiwan.

    Not everything is as clear-cut as you might expect or hope for... The most important factor for capacitor longevity and performance consistency across batches is the aluminium foil purity.
    This might prompt a manufacturer to refine the raw aluminium and produce foil rolls in Japan, in factories/plants with stricter tolerances and better QC, but final assembly and electrolyte mixing etc. might take place in mainland China and/or Taiwan.

    Some (by design) lower-performance series might be produced entirely in China. Some are even fully outsourced and then just branded.

    It really depends, there isn't a single manufacturer/brand that makes all their products using exactly the same procedures for all production series.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    I, nor anyone else, ever said that there were no caps made in Japan. What I said is that products made in China tend not to use Japanese made caps.

    Which ones? I've been in contact with Teapo and Elite (Chinsan) because I wanted to shorten the supply chain so PSUs could be assembled in Taiwan due to Trump's tariffs and both Teapo and Elite said they had no facilities in Taiwan anymore. Teapo is all in China and Elite is in China and Thailand.

    Some of the good series are made in China by the company's own facilities. The lower performance series are actually made by third party factories, including Su'Scon's and Elite's factory (been there, seen it).

    I can confirm.

    Taicon? Their XinFeng factory should still be in use for higher performance/stricter tolerance series... There are also some lower-tier manufacturers who could, in theory, make something useful given enough incentive, like JackCon or S'Tech (Supertech/STEC)... Still, I see your point - no one worth their weight in salt produces anywhere but China, save for rare (and usually expensive) exceptions.
