Tantal caps have bad habit to go dead-short and if availlable current is big enough they explode. They dont like heat, overvoltage(spikes?!) and especially not reverse-polarity. Ripple-current handling capacity varies wildly depending on manufacturer and series. Try something like 470uF 50v al-electrolytic + 100nF ceramics.
