BV light same as B&M light


BV-L810


Toplight Line Permanent

Doesn't it seem these two lights look very similar? Has anyone tried the BV compared to the B&M light? Tried doing a search on the BV but not much comes up about it.

Looks Like they Liked the Optics the German Company developed, and copied it.

I only own the German ones , they are Dynamo Powered , not Battery powered ..

NB Line tech has been Patented, not that ever slowed down any Chinese copiers .

The Toplight isn't that expensive, even if you buy it in the USA...how expensive is the BV?
