I have the wired version - works great. As long as the functions are turned off, the battery drain is minimal (like a digital watch.) Note that your link (and the one I have) is a Nikon style with a Canon plug. A Canon style is also available if that means something to you. The Nikon style version has a larger maximum number of shots if memory serves me right.There is nothing wrong with the build quality of this item - it's built as good as any full-priced factory product of this type of item. I have not been disappointed with the build quality of anything Yongnuo makes.
@wickidwombat - how long do the batteries last in the YN if you forget to take them out?
