The guidance provided in MIL-HDBK-1131A appears to be intended for capacitors being stored as replacement parts. What is the practice for aluminum electrolytic capacitors that are in storage as part of a larger assembly? For example, if I am storing switching DC power supplies as spares, how would I apply (or how do others apply) the guidance in MIL-HDBK-1131A to the capacitors used in the power supplies?
