What to purchase to upgrade the write cache on a ML350 G6

I am interested in upgrading a ML350 G6 256MB write cache (which does not include a battery) to either an 1GB BBWC or a 1GB FBWC. I know the 1GB BBWC requires a battery. But does the 1GB FBWC require anything else besides the card itself? I want to increase disk I/O performance in ESXi as well as extension/expansion of a online RAID through ACU.

The 1GB cache requires capacitor.

So I need to buy these two parts:

534562-B21 (1GB FBWC)

 

Correct?
