For this DualShock 4 CHU-ZCT2U Battery Replacement, shouldn’t the battery model be JDM-040 and not JDM-030 for this controller. I ordered the battery listed but the connector was too large. So I believe this needs to be edited to match accordingly to avoid confusion and incorrect orders. Thanks!

Good catch! I just pulled apart the ZCT1U and ZCT2U models and you are right. I will fix this in the guide. Thank you!
