Certainly doesn't sound right. Give me some idea of what you are looking at that seems like it's saying to do that.

C4 never sees anything over +5 volts so a 10V cap is fine. There's always a chance of some minor parts substitutions like this due to availability issues.

The manual I'm looking at ( www.nixieclock.biz/Downloads/AllInOneNix...uctionManualRev3.pdf ) seems to match what's in your picture, though I can't tell for sure because the ESP-01 in the picture is covering the area in question.

Batteries won't last very long at all. Best to use a standard power supply. I prefer to use 12VDC supply regardless of what the manuals say.

You can use the procedure in this manual www.nixieclock.biz/Downloads/WiFiTimepro...tructionManualV3.pdf Don't worry about the pictures showing a slightly different WiFi device. The procedure is the same for all devices that use an ESP-01.
