Since I wanted to mount this in my closet (where there are no outlets) next to an existing light, I went with this one and mounted it on a standard 4x4 electrical box.

Your solution seems a lot easier though, if you have an outlet nearby.

As far as the current goes, according to the Sparkfun teardown of the Nest, it uses "2.1Wh over 3.7V." So according to the calculator I used, the current should come to 0.58 amps.
