RE: [TCML] Ebay I tems

No problem but if you pay attention to the actual ebay Item listing it does not say anything about what to use them for and leave it to ones own discretion and experience.

I've used these caps in many coil's with no problem sold all of them wich never failed this is my last one wich I never used in any Tesla Coil system.
