-Hackspace has some bags of old electrolytic capacitors. Electrolytics have a tendency to deteriorate with age; aluminium develops a high ESR or becomes open circuit, and tantalum often develop a short circuit. While the electrolytics currently appear to work OK, it would be unwise to use them for anything "mission citical". They are, however, satisfactory for emergency use, for experimentation, and for prototypes.+===== Old Electrolytic Capacitors =====
