"Flexible pod" is about 13cm long with the standard 1/4inch -20 thread on it. The legs are bendable like mini electrical conduit. Not nearly as luxurious as a real Minox tripod, but only 60 grammes in weight, and has a handy pocket clip to carry it with. Only $4. If you're looking for a cheep easy pocketable tripod perfect for a Minox or Minolta or whatever, this may be the ticket.
Batteries. Batteries for subminiature cameras are often difficult to find. you can try a German firm that has real PX27's. Their URL is http://www.abcde.de/bc_ang.htm. You can also use the silver oxide SPX27BP replacement for the old mercury batteries - available from a variety of on-line sources including Kevin M. Bell at www.Camera-Collectors.Com
