You should not put AC voltage into DC circuits.
A better directions:
Open open the 285 and solder two wires(red = positive; black = negative) then snake it out to AC connector(this needs to be removed).
Buy 7.2V plug set from Radio Shack or remote control car stores.
Buy 7.2V Battery and Charger.
This will be better than buying the Quantum & cable battery.
It will also wake up the flash faster than using the Quantum.
The total cost should be less than $85.00.
The battery is about 5X stronger than those 4 AA and they do last longer.

The old series Vivitar 2800 flashgun has a very high trigger Voltage, that can damage your D60's circuitry. Even measuring the trigger voltage with a voltmeter is not a solution since you can't rely on the voltmeter to indicate the peak voltage.

That particular unit is probably not a good choice for the D80 because the trigger voltage (the electricity which flows from the flash through the camera circuits to fire the flash) is 19.5 volts, according to http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html - this could possibly damage your camera electronics.
You don't have to stick with Nikon brand Speedlights, but get a modern flash which says it is I-TTL compatible for Nikon.

It is the HV version, yes you can just put it in a color mode so the sensor on the front guesses the out put- it isn't ttl so it won't know what the camera is thinking
