5 amp should suffice.

Usually inverters draw between .5 and 1 amp each. I've used 2.5's plenty of times without issue, but never messed with the pred. chromium inverters.

NO, what color is the fuse?
black = 1A
purple = 3A
yellowish orange = 5A
yellowish brown = 7.5A
red = 10A
blue = 15A

I always use 3A fuses for DDEs.

It's a 5amp fuse.
However, it's likely that you have another issue.

Disconnect each ballast (chewing gum sized black box powering the angel eyes) and put a new fuse in.

Then, connect one ballast at a time to see if one of the built in fuses inside our ballasts are blown (to prevent problems), we'll get you a new one if this is our retail sale or get your retailer to help you.
