Says nothing about any kind of UL approval for US markets. It does CLAIM to have CE, though, but that is not recognized in the US. Not a big deal, unless it causes a fire, since you'd have issues getting insurance to pay.
BTW: A 110V rating for the dimmable version isn't great. Almost all US electrical systems now run on 120V, and many incandescent bulbs are rated to work at 130V for longevity. I don't know how the electronics in this bulb would react to 120V. It probably causes a shortened lifespan.
OP: Your claim that the 9W version is a 60W equivalent is incorrect. It is 40W equivalent, as the ad states. The stated lumen output also supports a 40W equivalency.
If I knew these bulbs were truly safe, and lasted as long as they claimed, I'd go for it. For me, personally, I'd rather not take the risk of a fire to save a few dollars. To each his own.
chrispitude said: Hmm. What color temperature is a flaming chandelier? (I'm guessing it's on the very warm end of the spectrum.) It would certainly give off lots of light! Particularly once the house burns as well. At least 50,000 lumens. It would nicely heat the place, too. You certainly wouldn't be cold. Too bad the duration would be rather short.
