Electrolytic would be fine if they could stand voltage spikes up to 10kV. Do you know any ? Of course we don't know any such and this is by purpose I think.... The problem with Tesla condensers is they are for kV but also not much capacitance. However I bet there is a way to join Tesla condenser with what we have in electrolytic capacitors and create one which has high capacitance and suitable for HV spikes. Ideal to store radiant energy in high amounts. Anyway, back to the topic...
