For the 47uf caps (C2 and 3), the BOM specifies ceramic caps, which get a bit pricey at that capacity. The schematic shows electrolytic caps, which I what I typically use in those spots. Do you see any problems using 47uf/16V electrolytic caps instead?
    I'm sure using a 50v cap is ok, that's what I'm doing, as for the ceramic vs electrolyte, wait for Ben

    The BOM just contains what I choose at the time, both of the subs you suggested should be fine.
