    Question Testing "Large" Capacitors

    I have a basically new set of capacitors from an AM band transmitter station. I know how to test air conditioning capacitors that are typically in the range of 25-75 uF on AC up to 370 volts. My meter will do this.

    These are DC capacitors, polarity is marked, with the following information:

    36DX 95*C
    15,000 uF 100v

    0836L 46
    + Positive

    Made by Nippon Chemi-con


    I also have some that are 5140 uF at 300 volts.

    Is there a way to safely test the viability of these without killing myself? I'd rather not have to yell "CLEAR!" when testing these either.
