electrical guru's required: spotlight bulb upgrades

Ok its not about my ranger but I went out and snagged a Stanley 1mill spotlight. love it so far. it has decent charge time and life and the output is beyond ridiculous. But it comes with a 55W H3 bulb...just like auxiliaries on my truck. Now ive got at least 10 100W H3 bulbs laying around...could i switch them out? what would be the cost in terms of effects. Heat? energy consumption? light output?

The cost would mostly be a burned up unit.
The wiring inside was designed to handle the current of a 55 watt bulb.
Double the current draw and watch the magic smoke issue forth.
