If you want to know how to choose the right capacitor, you are on the right page,  I will give you a simple answer to this question without going into all the details.
There are various types of capacitors according to their designs and mechanisms. However, let us make it easier by breaking down the capacitors into two main categories: Polarized capacitors and Non-polarized capacitors.
The difference between a polarized capacitor and a non-polarized capacitor is that the polarized capacitor has a positive and a negative side, and generally, polarized capacitors are offen cost much less than non-polarized capacitors of the same capacitance and voltage rating.
Do you need a polarized capacitor? Or a non-polarized capacitor? 
If you are looking for a polarized capacitor, go for an electrolytic capacitor. There are two types of Electrolytic capacitors: Tantalum and Aluminum.
• Aluminum
Aluminum capacitors are cheap and common. These capacitors are available in through-hole components and surface mount types, choose the aluminum one if you don’t need it for a special purpose.
• Tantalum
If you need a small and durable capacitor, you should pick the tantalum type. They work in environments with a wide range of temperature. Many tantalum capacitors are available in non-polarized versions as well.
If your electronic device requires non-polarized capacitors, you can go for a film capacitor, a ceramic capacitor or a mica capacitor. Ceramic type is inexpensive, while the film and mica type is more reliable and tolerates high temperatures.
There are a few other types of capacitors as well, but the above ones are the most common.

In our previous blog, Suntan tell our customers the working principle of capacitor. I believe you have a certain understanding after reading it. But when the manual comes with a number of capacitor symbols, you will feel these strange ,don't know what it means? Suntan lists some capacitor symbols visa blow table:


Capacitor Symbols

Capacitor Capacitor is used to store electric charge. It acts as short circuit with AC and open circuit with DC.
