2.3kW is 10a (didn't even need to use a calculator for that one!) so does that answer your question?

I'm not sure what you mean by 'lighting cable though? Is that just what you're referring to 1.5mm² as? If so, 1.5mm² flex is rated to more than 13A

Lighting is generally wired in 1.5mm² or 1.0mm², but like I say, 1.5mm² flex is rated to more than 13A, which is why you never see a bigger flex on anything with a plug on it.
