This Big Freaking Capacitor is just the trick when you have a lot of current sloshing around your project. They'll help smooth out voltage spikes by providing a little buffering. Adafruit use these to help stabilize solar panels on Adafruit's solar Lipoly charger kit, but they'd also be great with Adafruit's servo driver boards or on the power connection to Adafruit's 5V 10A power supply
4700uF capacitance for up to 10V power supplies.
