Flash suggestion

Hi all,

I just stumbled upon this Flash.
http://www.ebay.in/itm/321484478567?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649
Ref:

Though I'm not in a dire need of a flash yet (do not use the popup flash often even) I'm thinking to buy it.
Reasons:
  • I sometimes do little bit of macro with extension tube with following setup, and when I go near 1:1 or more the setup goes so close blocks most of the light.
  • It is working in all manual, and damn cheap @2,500 INR or $41 USD.
  • Any good flash will cost me above $150 USD and I can not spend that amount now or near future

Please let me know your thoughts.
In terms of voltage will this be safe to use on Canon EOS 600D?



My gear
  • 600D
  • Extention tubeset  [AF]13mm, 20mm 36mm. I use them with 50mm or 200mm
  • EF 50/1.8 Mk2
  • Jupiter 200/4 m42 lens with focus confirm adapter, with all 3 ext tube it produces ~0.5 MM at great working distance
  • A tripod
  • 4-Way Macro Focusing Slide Rail, This adds good amount of shake in windy condition
  • Cable release with timer function
  • EFS 18-135 IS (first version, non STM)
