Will this light bulb work in Australia??

I just ordered this light bulb from the US and it just crossed my mind that it might not work here. I know nothing about electrical stuff. Its 120v, can i just screw it in or do i have to do something special to it?
…… Like get refund.

    If it's 120V only then no, it won't work. Will likely blow up.

      Damn…. Cancelled the order :(
      Thanks

    Won't work on Australian 240V mains power.
    Also that's an incredibly bright bulb for normal use (eg. ~8x brighter than a standard domestic light bulb)

    Why would you buy an LED light globe from the other side of the planet?

    I’m very glad this was a post of “will this work” and not “I put this in my house and it blew up, now my insurance won’t cover me”.

      Do you mean mains power is not universally the same like USB charging.

    Why not order something like this, or even this?

      There's also a 45W version listed for special order at the Bunnings. These Osram bulbs seem much larger than the one the OP posted and have lower lumens per watt ratings. I would not be surprised if OP's bulb isoverstating the luminous flux and/or has inadequate heat sinking.

    Because some people just can't read :)

    Next time you look at anything overseas check the voltage and frequency are okay before buying.
