You may have to work on the formatting, but here it is

MiliFarad is not used, and would be m, so MF is microFarad.
To fit into the connector, it take its an electrolytic. Thats why

going to ground.
Its voltage can be as low as 6,3V, but higher is ok, just makes
There are also Tantal caps of this size. I dont use them because
made the experience that they die sooner, but I may be wrong, its
interesting option since you may not use that cable more than 5
The diode is a standard like 1N4148 and on one side of its glass
housing there is a line which corresponds to the negative side,
line in its symbol, on the left in the drawing.
