Re: Maxwell 31159 cap on eBay

Original poster: "Dr. Resonance" <resonance-at-jvlnet-dot-com> 

I checked with my Maxwell gurus.  This cap is used for a pulse application
involving kidney stone breaking.  It is rated for max. voltage reversal of
20% and will fail is used in a TC circuit with 95% voltage reversal being

Also, it is not rated for a high duty cycle that is common in TC circuits.
