What is the difference between the ME-1 and the ME-2 Flash units?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : MINOX FAQ : One Thread

I have seen two kinds of electronic flash for the 8x11 Minoxes: The ME-1 and the ME-2. But I have only seen pictures of the first kind. What is the difference between the two? Is one more desirable than the other? Rarer? More valuable? Easier to use or repair? Thanks!

ME-1 has a small flash head and a huge but separate power pack. ME-2 is a all-in-one flash unit. For detail of these two units, and pictures, see either Morris Moses and John Wade "Spycamera the MINOX Story" or Hubert Heckmann "Minox Variations in 8x11"
