A word of caution relating to a reply posted by Posted by John W. Childers on 05/03/00 at 2:12 PM

"If in doubt, I go a little larger, always allowing plenty of room for the solder fillets."

This is vaque and possibly dangerous. If a terminating land area is to large it will create a heatsinking problem. If there is too much "solder fillet" it will stress a capacitor and over time crack internal plates, degrading capacitance value.

If a rule of thumb is to be followed - Just enough land area to produce a visually inspectable fillet - should be the rule.
