I ordered these but it doesn't say they come with any cables. What cables do I need to purchase to use this with my Einstein strobe?these

The Einstein 640 has a 1/8" phone plug sync, but I don't know what your triggers have; could be a phone plug or something else. (It's definitely NOT a PC jack, which is what's on the other end of the cord that comes with the Einsteins.

Phottix flash units come with a 3.5mm (1/8th in.) jacks on both ends. I suspect the stratos uses 3.5mm as well and should come with a cable. I've bought cheap eBay triggers and they came with cables. Pocketwizards come with cables as well. Check the phottix website to see which cables come with the units when they ship.

None.

I bought several sets of the Phottix Strato IIs and each set came with several cables, including the ones I use with my Einsteins - 1/8" I believe

Silly question on my part, why didn't you purchase Buff trigger/receivers and a Commander. Seems to me that you get far more capability than what you are buying and for similar money.....perhaps I am wrong, won't be the first nor last time. Can someone set me straight on this?

In my case, I had my Stratos prior to picking up Einsteins. In addition to firing strobes, I used them (and still do) to trigger speedlites (600ex rt/580ex). The hot shoe connection is super quick to setup for triggering speedlites. Never had a problem with them, so I haven't felt the need to switch to buff receivers.

I do have a commander and CyberSync™ Transceivers, but mainly use them for adjusting power remotely. I use a Speedlite on top of Phottix transmitter for fill at receptions. Can't do that with commander.
