Perhaps if you explain the Power Stiffing Abilities to us some you might have even better luck with your sale.
I do not think I have seen any other caps for sale here so perhaps I, like many others, do not fully understand what this can do.
Also thank you for posting the pics with your username.

:: NANOPULSER.COM.SG :: (http://www.nanopulser.com.sg/capacitor.htm) < why caps are pointless. Everyone here knows caps are useless so you're not gonna find a buyer here bud:\ Craigslist or Ebay are your best bets, sorry you wasted your money on it to begin with.

Basically, a cap will help with short spikes in power being pulled from your cars charging system (dimming lights from bass, etc). If you're running your bass anywhere between 500-1500 watts and have dimming issues or dropouts in audio, then this will help. This would also make it beneficial for older model vehicles, because they ran lower amp alternators.
Caps are useless if you're running a heavier setup power-wise, anything over 1.5kW.. If you're running that much then you should hopefully be smart enough to realize a bigger battery and high output alternator setup is your only way. That is, if you're getting power issues to begin with.
A cap will do no more damage to a charging system than having an amp setup drawing too much power from it, it only sends it's charge when needed. The common misconception is that caps do more damage to a charging system of the car. This is true if they're misused. Caps were initially designed for sub amps to handle short spikes in power, mot multi-channel amps taking continuous levels of power.
When a cap is misued, placing it between your battery and multichannel, or all amps, then you risk possible long term issues with your alternator, you can burn it out, mess up the regulator, etc.. This is where I've heard people complain about their lack of function. Caps were never designed to be a cure-all for power issues. Good talk...
I will provide more information with my future posts, just didn't think it would be necessary in a car audio forum. My apologies there. It was one of my first for sale posts out of a bunch more.
And yeah it was 200 bucks, about 4 years ago, impulse buy at Circuit City. 5 Farads gives you a very decent level of charge, hence the high price, don't let the size fool you. Alumapro caps are even smaller and more powerful. If you really need a size comparison, I can do that.
