Minox introduced the Minox A with flash nipple PC socket in 1954 but where very slow in making any flash unit for the camera. With Minox GmbH support Minox USA marketed a bulb unit in 1955. The following year they advertised the "world's smallest, lightest and easiest to use electronic flash ... weighs a mere 24 oz". It sold for 82.50USD.
The connecting cable between the battery supply/capacitors and flash head is a coil. The plastic covering of this is usually found cracked, with holes and the connector itself split open. It is not save to use these units, even under test.
The flash head is a fan flash and attaches and clamps to the camera by a dial on the side. For use with the Minox B a plate to protect the light meter button was available. A hot shoe accessory that pushes inside the flash allowed it to be used with other cameras.
