    Uh oh.

    I wasn't saying 10 years because they tend to only last 10 years. I mentioned 10 years because that would put the age of the cap to fall into the Teapo caps known for "capacitor plague".

    "Teapo has stated that it also gets its electrolytes from Japan, and was not affected or disqualified."


    For me the capacitor plague was a favorable thing; so much dumped electronics I was able to keep and repair.
