Default Re: How to Recondition (Reform) Electrolytic Capacitors and Why

Also, with the vent open, the electrolyte will start to dry out, further accelerating the deterioration of the caps. But most importantly, the electrolyte in most caps is HIGHLY CORROSIVE and *will* destroy traces on PCBs.

So there's not much point in messing with these caps, other than charging and discharging them for fun, if you're into that.
Sorry for the late reply. Picture attached.

Thank you momaka.
