RE: Metallized caps require significant break-in time...

I believe one has to approach cap ratings with caution when the cap is going across the AC line. Depending on mfgr, a cap rated for 600/630VDC may have a very much lower AC line rating.

I have actually seen those caps with a 1.2kv rating,mainly because of AC spikes.
