    I found this info:

    Generic flash.
    Head: Fixed 35mm coverage.
    Swivel & tilt: no.
    Exposure modes: Auto, Varipower.
    Manual settings: Hi and Lo (2 steps).
    No built-in wireless modes.
    Trigger voltage: 5.3 volt.
    Batteries: 4xAA.
    Flash duration: 1/1000 sec. @ 1/1 (full output).
    Field upgradable: No.
    Dimensions: 70 x 90 x 56 mm, 210 g.
    Guide number (ISO 100, meter): 20.

    Discontinued: Yes.

    I read that about 5volts is already in danger zone.
    I got this in a package so not big deal but was thinking on trying it.

    There's no guarantee, but I wouldn't hesitate to use it. The danger zone exists because it's difficult to find specifications on what exactly the NEX-6 can handle.
