The Commlite T320-RX is about one of the best sets (at any price) and only 17.50 ish off ebay.
Syncs (no problem) at 1/180 with Pentax stuff and handles up to 300V flashes.

Takes cheap AAA batteries.

That ebay seller does have a lot of neg feedback, 24 in a month. Adverts don't specifically mention Pentax

Hi Stan, feedback is about par for the course (1 in 150). I've just checked through all14 pages for the last 12 months and none of it is for Flash Triggers. So you take a slight risk. But ebay will refund even if the seller doesn't.

There are other sellers some are from China. Also Amazon, but they aren't post free now under 20.

I bought one from the seller I linked to and it arrived within a couple of days complete in box. Brand new unopened.

It is listed for Pentax if you read the specification part and the Canon 1C lead (as the picture) is supplied which is also listed for Pentax. You would only use that if you were using the units as a remote camera trigger. Not used for flash.

The quite nice box also states Pentax.

It does of course state that TTL only works for Canon/Nikon. Pentax just fires on full power and because it's so fast it works at 1/180th. My Yongnuo RF-602 only works up to 1/125 and up to 30Volts.

Edit: Post #7 on this thread claims that he has tested PTTL with a Metz flash and it works

I'm not in the market for triggers at the moment was just curious. If I read the ebay rules correctly there are really geared towards the buyer now. What I may be looking for is third party batteries for K7 and K5.
