EDIT: I'm going to guess this is correct:

How can it store electricity if it doesn't conduct it?

I recommend you look up how a capacitor works, because many people here are missing the mark on the difference between conductance and capacitance.

AS5 is not conductive, but IS slightly capacitive. Conductance measures the ability of a material to transmit or pass an electrical charge through it. AS5 does not do this (while copper and other solid metals are very conductive).

However, being capacitive means that, when placed inbetween two conductive surfaces with their being an electric field(on a motherboard, this could mean between a pin and and resistor or some wire), the AS5 will function as a dielectric (electrical polarized insulator) which stores electric charge via a static electric field due to the potential difference (voltage) between both conductive sides. This is dangerous because if it comes into contact with another piece of metal, it can quickly release its entire stored energy and fry whatever it touched.

I've no idea, but I assume those who make it would know. Also, the post above sounds pretty good too.

I am getting sick of this. If you don't know what you are trying to say then don't post. First it is people who don't know anything about power supplies to something as simple as paste. I think moderators should implement a minus rep button.

He's on the mark (well done):
