Default Kisan VS wig wag

Hello all, I am looking to get some headlight flashers (kisan p115WS)
and tail light flashers(kisan 20 W-D).
for my 2005 Vulcan 800 classic(VN800B)

the headlight modulator is $109 from thier site but , on ebay I found them for $99 here:

Motorcycle Apparel items - Get great deals on Motorcycle Gear, Helmets items on eBay Stores!

the tail light modulators from kaison are $99 as well from the ebay store..
I also found a Back Off wig wag that should work with my bike.
this module is $40 .
a substantial savings for essentially, the same effect(flashing the tail lights)
I know I can just flash them manually, but I may not have time or forget to flash them in an emergengy stop situation.
that is why I plan on purchasing one of the two.

does anyone here use these products?
is there a big difference between the wig wag and the kisan other than price and ease of installation?
I feel confidant that I would be able to install either successfully.
I'm wondering about the wigwag burning out my stock taillight bulbe prematurley.

thanks for reading,

I've used both products types of products in the past. There's no concern about bulb life.

The price of electronics like these vary widely based on the quality of components used. The better US and Japanese relays and switches cost more, last longer. The cheaper Chinese stuff works, but fails sooner, or often, right out of the box.

See what the warranty / replacement policy is. If it's "No returns on electronic devices," get the better units.
