He said the wall wart is putting out over 6v not 5.5.
Now I know I could of used and 5v regulator. But it's to late. So I was wondering if I could use a resistor to lower the voltage. Is so can someone show me how to figure it out.
The lesson here is that a wall-wart is unlikely to be suitable for powering digital electronics unlessused with a proper voltage regulator, or unless it is already "fully voltage regulated" internally - thegood news is that mains _USB_ wall warts are _required_ to be fully regulated to 5V - this is what youshould have gone for I think.
