      Comments about RadioShack TIP42G PNP Transistors:

      My Panasonic high end 2 line phone lost all audio. I found the PNP power amp transistor shorted. Looked at Radio Shack and found the TIP42, soldered it in place and now everything is cool.

          Comments about RadioShack TIP42G PNP Transistors:

          I've never seen a transistor take so much abuse. I thought I thought I fried it several times, but the smoke was coming from the melying plastic on my breadboard. I've shorted it, and operated it at well over 150 C, but never had a problem (except burning my fingers). It's an unbelievably great transistor.

              Comments about RadioShack TIP42G PNP Transistors:

              Can take the abuse. Hit the VBE voltage +8 with 4A drain ~1kHz: Still worked. Good for PWM apps where a high off voltage and <15% from peak is acceptable but don't push past 85%. Lots of heat.

              Comments about RadioShack TIP42G PNP Transistors:

              You specifications should say the I(C) is 6.0 A not 6.0 mA
