    I misquoted the price ... it's $20 - $80 per pound, and it all depends on the type of the capacitor and the buyer.
    The guy I last sold to was up in New York ... he only accepted a specific type of "captain jack" style cap, and was paying $32 a pound.

    Basically in order to sell these guys, you have to save up a lot of caps, keep them separated, and shop around.

    Today I rip 3 cell phones apart to see what's inside!
    I was surprised at what I found, considering these phones are the 'cheap disposable' kind!
