Re: Capacitor testing

 

Apply a slow charge to the cap with a resistor to allow the electrodes to reform electrochemically. Charge to about 80% of rated voltage and hold it there for a few hours. Cap. performance should be ok then.
I've been playing with supercaps this year...so that's how to get proper performance and low leakage currents.
