What is the difference between E-11 and DOT?

Looking at the Tusk dual sport lighting kit and says it is E-11 rated. Not sure what that is? Is that same as DOT?

That's a new one on me. Give Tusk a call!

My best guess after a stab on google......

also makes sence with a hi lo beam of 240v/120v...and only one listed with dual voltages

Edison screw-cap fittings

An example of incandescent light bulb fused with E40 (Edison 40 mm) male screw base.

I believe, it is a reference to the European common market certification, like DOT.

Yes - E mark is a European thing signify road legal

Capital E followed by a number, usually in a circle

I believe the number signifies the country of manufacture

Tyres / lights have to be E marked for use on the road over here, where as you have the DOT marking

So question is..............Does the E-11 marking cut it here in the states?

My best guess is NO-WAY!!! But I could be wrong?

don't think so

USA road legal marking is DOT - correct?
