Limitation of stock charge system reagarding lights?

Im seeing a lot of people on here running the dual battery setup.
I was wondering, i want to add three hella 500's to my rhino. they draw 55watts each. is my stock charge system up to the task? at what point will i need to step it up to a dual battery?
oh and i already have the hid conversion for the stock headlights.
thanks

next step that works well is an alt kit, from BYC Motorsports or UTV crap, no need for extra battery then, one in our group can run 9 Hids at 14 volts on a rhino.

If you are not running those lights all night long, you can just use a battery tender to keep the battery at full charge. Your battery will last for a while with those light on like a couple hours.
