Default Echlin condensers

Just looking up a condenser, for a helmet,on NAPA website and noticed that
they are giving 20% off for AAA members during November.
I am thinking about getting a spare to have handy;might never need it.

Do condensers have a shelf life ???

Can type condensers with layers of paper and foil have a shelf life, but it is measured in decades.
