so im facing the need for low esr and high ripple current for a smps output filter after rectifier. Would it be better in terms of both ESR and ripple to put say 8x470uF in parallel or 4x1000uF ? Or maybe there wouldn't be a big difference ? Assuming both caps are with a low esr and high ripple ratings. It's also a matter of available space and ergonomics but ofcourse the electric characteristics come first hand.
