I just got some cerebral accelerators from my event chests, and their info says the cerebral accelerators will expire on 8/19. Does it mean that if I consumed a cerebral accelerators before 8/19 and still have its effect at the moment of 8/19 0:00:00, the effect will be removed immediatly at that moment?

Basically. Cerebral Accelerators are temporary attribute boosters that expire when your character exceeds a specific age.
Gotta plug those in on day 1 for best effect. If you wait, then you miss your window.

I'm not sure if it is midnight or downtime, but yes, they will stop working. Regarding the date I thought it's coming Tuesday, August 9th, so less than 2 days left. After that they are converted into useless gimmicks reminding you of the event.

If I consumed an accelerator before its expire date, but it had not run its full duration when the expire date comes, will it stop working?

It will stop working, at least it was like that in the last event.

I read that as August in three years time.
