My 10R is blowing headlight fuses...why?

So I changed out the led running lights in between the headlights to the ultraviolet/blue ones and I installed a set of hyperwhite headlights. Every few times I go and start it up, the headlights stop working. So at which point I pull off the front and rear seats and check the fuses. The 10A fuse for the headlight is blown. I'm guessing its because of the higher wattage headlights? Maybe? To anyone that has switched out the headlight bulbs and running lights, have you had the same issue? I decided to try out a 15A fuse in there just to see if it blows that too. Im hoping it was just because the 10a was too weak for the new headlights. What you ya think?
