I have a couple of components in the Arduino Starter Kit that I'm not able to find the specs for, this is a picture of them (ruler in cm for scale):

enter image description here

It's probably not possible to read the labels on them, so I'll write them down: The blue ones say

µ1J63
?1E6

Where the ? represents a celltower-like symbol.

And the orange ones say

101
Suntan *

The manual mentions that they are capacitors but doesn't say anything about them. The online starter kit page only mentions one capacitor type and that one wasn't even included.

µ1J63

0.1µF, ±5% tolerance, 63WV max

101

10E1(100)pF (0.1nF), no precision or working voltage given

All About Capacitor Markings

As an aside, I don't believe you have an authentic kit there since the contents don't match the manifest.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks! I think I do actually have the official kit, as I bought it in a legit store, it came in the standard box and it included the Arduino Projects Book. Maybe I have an older version (~2 years ago) then the one the site describes. \$\endgroup\$ Oct 27 '16 at 20:06

Suntan might be: Suntan TS15001H101KSBSA0R 100pF 10% 50V SL 2.5mm Ceramic Disc Capacitor
