They are correct. That is the "Type 3" pin out. The CX-M, CS-M, RM, HX Silver and Gold, HXi, AX Platinum and AXi all use this same pinout.

That's true. It can be kind of a pain to pop in and out of each make and model, though.

What one should do is establish where they're going to buy from, a price range, a criteria (efficiency,...
