    3A.

    The fuse is rated for the cable and not the device so like above 3amp. It's to do with the thickness of the wires in the cable. Thinner wires have a higher resistance so heavier loads cause them to heat up.
    The cable is rated to the device it powers as copper cost money so you're not going to put 6mm core cable on a device unless it merits it.

    In short, use 3 amp as Andy says.
