Hi,

I am considering to power arduino (in the VIN port) in parallel with  the Led strip with the same power source of  12V.

I will use arduino to PWM the leds.

The led strip should use something between 1.5 and 2 A.

Is there any risk of  damaging the Arduino when all strip are all ON, because of the 2 A current?

Thanks in advance.

Depends on which Arduino and which LED strip, which you didn't tell.
Never power loads like that through/from the Arduino.
