Sometimes a capacitor's life is short for no apparent reason. Other times something else fails and draws too much current through the capacitor and it blows. Surprises the hell out of you doesn't it?
Just be glad it wasn't one of these beasts. They are about three inches in diameter,aluminum end plates, ceramic case and loaded with a sticky tar like substance. When they go bang they really go BANG!!
. BTW I never did get all the tar cleaned out of the transmitter that it exploded inside of.
There are 10 kinds of people in this world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
