Gauss's Relation: The total flux passing outward through any closed surface 
equals the reciprocal of the permittivity of free space times the total 
electric charge INSIDE the surface. This is the principle of a Faraday cage. 
The field in this case exists only outside the terminal. You can sit inside 
all day. There is no electric field inside a closed, charged conductor.  But 
if you so much as stick a fingernail through to the outside, sizzzzzle--->>> 

Hope this helps.
