Tantalum - Highly polarised. Good temperature range. Good frequency response. High volume efficiency. Common range: 0.1uF to 1mF, Aluminium Electrolytic - Polarised. Good volume efficiency. Cheap. High ESR. High charge leakage. Narrow frequency range. Low tolerance. Common range: 0.1uF to 0.1F, Ceramic - Cheap. Low ESR. Lower volume efficiency. Large range of temperature profiles available. Common range: 1pF to 100uF, Glass - Very expensive. Good temperature stability. Able to withstand temperature and current spikes. Low peizoelectric noise. Low ESR. Good lifetime. Common range: 0.1pF to 1uF, Polyester Film - Handles voltage spikes well (can be made 'self-healing'). Good temperature resistance. Low ESR. Low charge leakage. Poor tolerance. Common range: 1uF to 1mF, Polypropylene Film - Handles voltage spikes well (can be made 'self-healing'). Good temperature resistance. Low ESR. Low charge leakage. High tolerance available. Common range: 1pF to 1nF,
