Well yes, but I don't plan on operating them at 85C. I wastoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
a little constrained by what was in stock at Digikey or Mouser.
There were a few available at 3-4K hours at 105C.
Destruction of a cap is a complicated electrochemical event. But, to
a first approximation, you can probably use the rule of thumb for
chemical reactions (double for every 10C rise in temp, or halve
for every 10C decrease). That would be around 64K hours at 35C.
That has to be over-optimistic, but I doubt if I'll have to
worry about them for a while.
Still, if I had run across the Rubycons I probably would have
