Q: The connector fit is very tight! Is this normal?
A: Yes, we made it tight by design. We want to be absolutely sure the controller does not disconnect while in use. (we have been burned by extremely loose connectors where this would happen).

Q: The center pin in the connector looks different. Is this a defect?
A: Good eye! But no, it is not a defect. All units are made like this. Functionality is not affected.
