That Thule Audio variation places DC across a polarised capacitor. I would not recommend that.
The PTC is a Positive Temperature Coefficient resistance.
It prevents the circuit working when load current goes too high. Same effect as the Mains Bulb Tester filament. It is a PTC resistance.

I think Thule Audio should be sent back to school.
