I am to make an equipment which could work as low as -25 C.

which type of capacitor should i use.

I am using Max232 and electrolyte capacitor.

can electoryltic capacitor be used for low temperature as i read in wiki

": for most types, capacitance falls off rapidly below room temperature while dissipation factor can be ten times higher at −25 °C than at 25 °C. Most limitations can be traced to the electrolyte."

wht could be a good choice.

what about tantalum ?

please need an immediate response
