Voltage reversals typical in Tesla circuits 90-95%. This cap is only rated for max of 50% and average of 15% --- it would be pushed very hard if used in a Tesla oscillator circuit.

One could always figure out what the 95% VR rating would be using the capacitor life equations from Maxwell.


Given the really high exponent for voltage, it might be possible to run it at a lower voltage and more than make up for the effects of reversal.

It's a 35 kV rated capacitor.. running it at, say, 20 kV, would be a very large change.
