#18 is geneerly used for control wiring and speaker wire. It can handle up to 10A of low volltage, but it’s not not rated to be “permently installed.”

Meaning you could use is as a plug in cord, but it should’t be fixed to a switch or breaker.

Just because the wire can handle 10A doesn’t mean the sheathing can. It could run hot over 5-7A.

I’d go with #14 if it was me....
