landing light upgrade 100w to 250 watt

landing light upgrade 100w to 250 watt

Has anyone upgraded their landing light on a cessna 172 wing mount from 100watt [4509] to the 250 watt [4313 bulb] and if so what changes were required, fuse is now 20a so there is no problem with power supply.I land on a Ranch strip with very little strip light could use more light on very dark nights Thanks

I would be concerned with the switch. You are increasing the current by
2 1/2 times. The inrush current will be even greater.

One other option to consider it to go with a Quartz Halogen light.  The Q4509 draws the same 100 watts but puts out considerably more light.
