I've experienced that. A cap is much better kept outside in some setups. The battery makes the best difference.

BTW, I completely ignored this thread earlier. :
Well explained and not very geeky too.

Default Caps Caps Caps!!!

I have different doubts regarding caps.
When we charge a Battery we use DC current and this power supply mostly runs using diodes or rectifiers or even some times using volves (for higher current rating) but without capacitors, as these capacitors keep some voltage while charging and discharging and it affects the charging of battery.

I do understand that it will do help for amplifier to maintain a higher current rating and will prevent from sudden voltage drop, as it do in case of Camera Flash.

but I think it might affect the charging system of the battery (This is my doubt). Adding a capacitor to the load will affect charging system??

if not then why do not use capacitors while charging a battery (We use step down transformer and rectifier without capacitor or with a regulated power supply)
