Are there bacteria inside old electrolytic capacitators ?

Started by skybuck2000 October 18, 2021
Ever heard of such a thing ?

This is one of my hypotheses why there is brown stuff on top of a backup motherboard that was inside a box in a closest for many years, at least 10 years, possibly more.

However it was bought second-hand, so could also be that previous owner ran it very hot, though it seems more likely that any brown stuff would be wiped off before it would be put into the bag ?

So this leads me to this bacteria hypothesis that it formed gasses inside the capacitator and made this brown stuff bubble up.

Bye for now,
  Skybuck.

The electrolyte is acid, not bug friendly. But it does leak, especially in cheap caps that are overheated. -- Father Brown's figure remained quite dark and still; but in that instant he had lost his head. His head was always most valuable when he had lost it.
