Re: Maxwell 31159 cap on eBay

Found it in an old maxwell catalog

it's a 1pps unit.  has a 100,000 shot life. (how many of the shots have been
used already?)
You can contemplate using it with derating
(http://home.earthlink-dot-net/~jimlux/caplife.htm has the equations from
Maxwell for doing so...), but, when all is said and done, you might find
something better, especially if the price goes up much from where it is now.

.149 uF is also pretty big, unless you're running a lot of power, in which
case the RMS current limits might become an issue too.
