Manfrotto PIXI Mini.
When you've attached the adaptor for the light, the light attached by slipping its connector in and twisting the wheels to lock it firmly in place. It's easy to do and the wheel nearest the flash can be undone to adjust the direction which the flash is facing. The flash is fairly quick to remove, but can be awkward if you receive a phone call while the flash it attached, it doesn't get in the way but you might look a bit strange!
The light is powered by two AAA batteries, with an estimated life of around 40 mins. It is switched on by the dial on the side which also allows you to adjust the strength of the light being emitted. When switching it on and off you'll hear a click.
