YN-04 II max voltage?

Can anyone confirm that the YN-04 II can handle high voltage.
I've seen many people state that it is good for 12v and under, but have seen some say it's fine for up to 300v.
This thread in particular someone says he got a message from the manufacturer saying it's ok...

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-flashes-lighting-technique/156588-...-question.html

So I'd like to know if anyone knows for sure (as in, has the YN-04 II and uses it with higher voltage flashes with no issues).

I have contacted Yongnuo about this, and they told me it can handle 300V. I got it directly from them, so I assume it's reliable.

I went ahead and tried it yesterday... all seems fine.
Guess they know what they're talking about.
Thanks for the reply.

Another question then is if the yn-04 II can take up to 300v can I put the transmitter on the camera and safely use a flash with high voltage on top of it?
That I don't want to try unless I know for sure it's safe.

I would assume so, but the risk is higher, since there's physical contact with your camera. A receiver costs 15$, a camera a bit more.

Not worth the risk of just trying.
