Re: Capacitor test results

Re: Current from "30 ma" neon transformer
	The rated current is with a RESISTIVE load!  With
a capacitive load the current will be higher, because the
capacitive reactance cancels part of the inductive reactance
of the transformer.  The approximate reactance of the transformer
is 12000/.03 = 400,000 ohms.  Subtracting 106,000 you get
294 k.  The net current is thus 41 ma, and the voltage 
across the capacitor should reach around 4300.  Surely enough for
a test.
