Capacitor Life from the Whitepaper: In places where large capacitors are needed (in the power supplies for instance), we use only long life high temperature (2000hour/105°C) electrolytics and high grade ceramics.
I'm hoping there is a Zero or two missing from the above statement. Considering there is no power switch we'd exceed 2000 hours in just 3 months ?!?!?
That is 2000 hours at 105°C (221°F!) The inside of the m9xx will never reach that kind of temperature in normal operation. Rest assured, these will last a very, very long time.
Your correct, I looked up some spec sheets, and if near room temperature till about 60'c the life span increase by about 200 to 600 times. So they should last a good long time as you say.
