Re: Maxwell 31159 cap on eBay

Ben, all,

I think most if not all of the Maxwell 31xxx series capactiors are indeed
pulse rated
but are only rated for 1 pps at their rated voltage/capacitance. The Maxwell
sereis caps are pulse rated for up to 1000 pps at their rated
You could probably still use this cap in tesla service but you would need to
derably downrate the voltage rating to fire at 100's of pps.
