Wireless Flash Trigger

What ho one and all,

Have managed to revive an old Courtenay 800w/s flash pack and would like to use with my D300 for some portraiture.

Being uncertain of the trigger voltage (it dates from around 1980) I figured that an inexpensive wireless flash trigger (from China?) would do the job. It does fire my Vivitar 285HV which has a trigger voltage of around 7v.

But the flash pack, zilch. Am not sure of the trigger voltage but seems to be (may be) around 17v. which I assume the 2 x AAA batteries inside the receiver cannot deliver.

I would assume that if 17v is about correct, there is no problem using a pc cord to the D300 as it should accept up to 250v. But the purpose of this question, does anyone know of an inexpensive wireless flash trigger that delivers a more powerful 'bang?'

How about this:


which is mains connected so presumably delivers sufficient power?

Toodle pip and thanks
