Why on earth do want to overvolt a cap
However they sound very funny when they are "popping" like firecrackers

Sorry couldn't help it

Normally you can overvolt with 10-20% for a very short periode, however there's a great chance for slowly destroying the cap each time this is done............

I forgot

Always use googles and other safety equipment, when playing with electrolytic caps
