SunUp Taiwanese Brand Dynamo

Is SunUp the only producer of Spoke Driven Dynamo out there today? I know there used to be the German Aufa in 2002, but that went out of business.

Spoke dynamos are the best option for me since I have V-brakes. I just want to know if there are other brands that I can choose from.

I know this is not what you asked, but care to elaborate this part a bit? I'm not trying to start anything, just curious as I don't understand the logic.

Spoke dynamos are harder/impossible to install for bicycle with disc brakes. It is most optimal for V-brakes/rim brakes.

OK, the way I understood it was "specifically for V-brakes, spoke dynamo is better than a dynohub or bottle dynamo". Thanks for the clarification.
