I'm struggling to decide if this capacitor is 150pF or 68pF (and in the latter case, what does the 151K stand for?)

enter image description here


what does the 151\$\color{red}{K}\$ stand for?

Picture from here.

K means 10 % tolerance. The 151 part usually means 15 with 1 zero = 150 pF.

153J would be 15000 pF or a 15 nF 5% capacitor.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks! Out of curiosity, what does the 68 at the end stands for? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I have no idea unfortunately - you do see a lot of "extra" info printed on some disc capacitors and most of it can be figured out but, this I can't. I'm certain as I can be that it isn't the 68 pF value. \$\endgroup\$
