Solder pad stripped while replacing battery
Problem: I was de-soldering the original Apple battery but due to excess/lack of heat and too much force, one of the three solder pads was stripped off. I cannot find the stripped solder pad.
My Research: The easiest solution appears to be to solder the stripped solder pad joint to the nearest copper trace.
Question: There are 2 traces equally close to the stripped copper joint. Which do I solder to? Do I need to desolder the battery again and solder to the trace, or can I just add solder to link up with the trace?
Here is a picture of what my ipod touch currently looks like inside:
As you can see, Trace A and B are equally close, but Trace A is bigger. Do I solder to A, B, or both? Is there any issues if my solder covers both A and B?
Is this a good question?
