Most of mine are under 8v. I usually radio trigger them anyway but a hot one could fry your radio receiver at the flash end.
I like the 283 and have literally a bag full and run them off quantum turbos.
*Trigger voltage is what ionizes the gas in the flash tube. It doesn't influence the voltage at the shoe, that's the input voltage to the voltage multiplier.
Heavily sedated for your protection.
