NO, absolutely not, you cannot and should not feed electrical devices from any lighting wiring, do it properly or if your not sure get a Qualified Electrician in.
Just put eneloop batteries in as they will last for years unless you have a lit doorbell.
Best to run the transformer from the main consumer unit. The lighting circuit shouldn't have an issue with load as some light fitting run 300w+ with there crazy amount of halogen bulbs, also you have ceiling and extractor fans aswell as some bathroom heaters and shaver adapters.
