I looked up the LED lamp wattage, pretty small... I have a clamp-on ammeter, I can go check, see what the current setup total is, go from there... I think I tossed all the boxes they came in.. But glancing at Amazon, most range from 3W to 5 watts... So some converting.. 3W all of a 0.25A, or 250 Ma.. 5W is 0.41A, so all very minor currents... even when a dozen are installed well within a 12 ga cable...

Yes, voltage drop is more of an issue with long runs and higher wattage of older incandescent lamps. Typically, the low voltage transformers had settings for 12 to 15 volts to allow you to compensate for the voltage drop. But with low wattage LEDs, it's much less of an issue than it used to be.
