However, looking at it today I noticed that the timer box says its rated for 120W, but I now have 9 18W buls or 160W on it.

I read your post to DH. He's confused about your terminology.

Are you sure it's 120W and not 120 volts.

Your nine light bulbs is only pulling a little over 1 amp. Not much power at all.

For example here is a timer. It list volts and watts.
