Crack the capacitor in half straight down the middle with pliers jon.you will now see two layers.prick one wire on the black half and one wire on grey half and tell me how many micro-amperes you see.get some distilled water ready by your side

I had a small reading of around. 023 mili volts for a moment and then when I when back to the amp reading I lost all the readings all together now I only get a reading when I move my positive lead across the oxide layer inside
