Default GTB Capacitor

How would you go about testing to see if your capacitor is working properly? What are the signs that it's failing?

use a multitester to test the input and output voltages/resistances. If they are not what the original spec says they should be it is shot.

Don't know if it's that easy...

On a side question, do you need to run the capacitor for 4 cell 1/12th ?

Alternatively, what are the characteristics of not running a capacitor?
