Low-profile electrolytic decoupling capacitors 10uF/25V. These capacitors are great transient/surge suppressors and work well as charge pump caps for MAX232 circuits. High quality radial electrolytic capacitors.

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Rookie - The number of pins increases, and you will have to determine polarity of components and some of the components might be a bit trickier or close together. You might need solder wick or flux.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

At least we know SparkFun isn't cheap if they are telling you, you can get these cheaper from such and such. that only makes me want to get it from Sparkfun because of the honesty.
It's a shipping vs price tradeoff. Sparkfun charges less than Digikey for shipping, but Digikey charges less per unit, with greater discounts the more you order.
Right now they even out at about 20 pcs. So if you need less, go with Sparkfun.
It should not really be all that surprising, Digikey is a hell of a lot bigger than Sparkfun.
If you only want one, I go with sparkfun
It's worth noting that these don't look like the picture any more. They're much nicer now :)
These the the 'stubby' type, as seen in the SparkPunk Sound Kit and RedBoard PTH. Much more handy and compact.
Do these still work as a regular 10uF capacitor?
As far as I can tell, they are regular capacitors, so yes.
