H,

Two schools of thought on that.

As the capacitors will charge to 13.5 Volts,
a 13 Volt Zener-diode would be dumping extra voltage all the time the capacitors are charged,
so the Zener-diode would not last as long.

Having a 15 Volt Zener-diode will just act as an over voltage protection for the capacitors.

But thanks for the input.

Paul
