Default Re: Pic of cap, is it a Badcap?

Not sure my scope (old one being thrown out at work) works, but that's a good idea.

It could be hardened rubber instead of lacquer.

And it's not leaking anything.

I recently acquired an LCR meter, so I could (and planned) to measure the capacitance, but not sure if a proper reading there would tell you something about its behaviour when needing to deliver full power.

I'll follow up once I get new info. Thanks guys!
