When checking a problem with one of my geckos, I acidentally hooked my capasitor back up backwards(70uf 63V). It lasted a few seconds once power was applied . Anyway, I went to the big city today to pick up a replacement. First stop was radio shack. They didn't have any big enough. So they sent me down the road to a smaller electronics only place. They didn't have a 63V, but the lady said I could use a 100V in place of it.
So is that the case? Voltage can go higher on capacitors?
Oh and by the way, those things are nasty when they blow. It shot smoke and some liquid stuff about 3 feed in the air. Didn't smell too good either.
