    Doesn't have to be permanent. It used to be popular to run it on the bathroom light switch.

    If it is not a permanent live, it won’t charge the shaver/toothbrush etc unless the light is left on!

    Academic though as the OP has already stated it’s a permanent feed.

    Agreed.

    Some light/socket units I've encountered, including mirrors/cupboards are made this way.
