As you increase the number of LEDs, you increase the amps your power supply will need to be able to provide. The more amps you're working with, the more you need to be cautious about your wiring and [fusing](https://quinled.info/2019/02/18/use-fuses-for-increased-safety/).
For example, if you want to power your installation off a sealed lead acid battery (e.g. a car battery), you need to be very careful about amps. These kinds of batteries can supply hundreds of amps, so you need to ensure that you use fuses and voltage regulators along the way. If you're using USB pocket chargers on the other hand, they tend to be current limited (most provide only 1-2A max) already so you can worry less about fusing there.
