With the above in mind, i will fuse down at FCU and run a suitable MCB, but i still need conformation of how to work out the Amps on the transformer? 100w divided by 19v is not right if its 5.26 amps. Should be less than 1 surely in bathroom?
Please can you elaborate?
Not very clear by me - Put it another way, what is limited/reduced in bathrooms to be safe (because of water) Amps or voltage, considering that the shaver socket runs 230v that is why i said is 1Amp OK?
A shaver socket is somewhat of a one off, they have isolating transformers in them. Protection is basically by the means of you will need to have 2 faults in order to get a shock. The circuits supplying class 1 or 2 electrical items in the zones and other metallic items which can introduce potential into the bathroom should be supplementary bonded together (take a look at the wiki) in order to minimise the potential difference which can exist to a safer level. 0.1A is enough to kill, in a bathroom the risk is increased owing to wet bodies and lack of clothing (awaits reply )
Lowering the tone are we! I see, off the top of my head my bathroom has no earth bonding as per it was built in 1976.
