Cables for led lighting

So prepared my electrics in my van and put some 2,5mm² cables for the lighting, the 7 led lights (12V & 3W) i bought have very thin cables.

  • Which fuse should i use?
  • should i use a small fuse for since the cables of the light spots are very thin?

Total Wattage: 21W so 1,75A max amperage that i will draw
but if this might be too much to pass the small wires of the led lights?

I would put a 2 amp fuse right before a junction box/block, heavy in, lights out, each using just their own wires.

also got 3w led lights with very small wires (4of them) got them on 1.5mm2 cable and a 2a fuse, works perfectly
