rating.. Perhaps we presumed something after CP stating _unofficially_
something like "they work in TCs".. Perhaps CP should consult someone 
a high-powered TC for testing their caps as their testing methods seem 
be totally inadequate.. Too bad.."

Kristian, the CP Caps ARE designed for TC use, at least that's their 
claim. I requested a list of all their TC Caps and at the top of the 
form they list the Caps as "high voltage capacitors designed 
specifically for Tesla coil application" and provide the following 
specs: 60 HZ 120 PPS 100 kHz to 500 kHz Ringing frequency.
 I have an order in with them that's scheduled to be shipped July 18, I 
doubt they will let me out of it now, I will be calling them to express 
my concern regarding safety of these Caps.
