Does a capacitor need to be charged? Capacitors do not store charge. Capacitors actually store an imbalance of charge. If one plate of a capacitor has 1 coulomb of charge stored on it, the other plate will have −1 coulomb, making the total charge (added up across both plates) zero.
How long does a AC capacitor take to charge? So it takes the capacitor about 15 seconds to charge up to near 9 volts.

How often should you replace AC capacitor? In general, you can expect most AC capacitors to last about 20 years. This is a fairly long lifespan, which is why most heating and AC repair companies will take a look at the capacitor last.
