Or you have equipment with a mains filter, which uses caps between live and chassis. Very common. Some manufacturrers seem to use larger caps than others, so you get more current through them. Annoying, but legal and safe.

That is what I meant but I seem to express myself poorly. And I like to have people guessing why things happen...

Class II permits leakage current of up to 0.25mA, which corresponds to the effect of a 3n3 capacitor in a 240V psu. I feel these current levels

Class II is approved so you will have a problem when buying Class II devices. But you did not reply the question...

Never used those but to be honest the word mercury is enough for me to not use them.
