I'm building a light installation and would love to use a sleek fabric-wrapped cable. As I need at least 5 cables I thought of using an Ethernet-cable as they come in nice forms and shapes.
The problem is that I'm powering some 144LEDs (https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-dotstar-leds) which require 8A at 5V.
Based on this (https://networkengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/43734/what-is-the-voltage-used-in-ethernet-lines-utp-cables) I assume that it wouldn't be an issue. But as I don't want my project to become a fire hazard of some sort I want to make sure that "misusing" an Ethernet cable won't be an issue.
Any help would be appreciated.
