Spintronic capacitor

Just arrived at challenge 31 but the capacitor only partially charges. Is this normal or should it fully charge? ie is the capacitor faulty?

Hey @jenkincornwall,
When you say it only partially charges, what value is the capacitor giving?

The battery is ~6 spinVolts, so for Challenge #31, you should see a value around 6 (note that due to some internal resistances inherent in the Spintronic parts, you may not see a full 6 spinVolts). If you are seeing less than ~6 spinVolts, what happens if you tap the top of the capacitor gently?
