I need some help for my senior design project. The general idea of the design is I am using the Arduino UNO combined with the VRbot voice recognition module to control two linear servos/actuators.

Firgelli L12 -R Linear Servos:

I used an H-bridge IC L293D and followed the tutorial here to forward and reverse the actuators:

I have everything working correctly but I need some help on making it portable. I'm using a 7.4V 2200mAh rechargeable lithium ion battery to power everything found below:

Li-Ion 18650 7.4V 2200 mAh Rechargeable Battery module with PCB:

How can I safely and correctly power both the servos and Arduino board using just one battery. Can I connect the battery directly to both the servos and Vin of the Arduino? Any help would be great!

You probably need to get a UBEC like below.

Instead of buying a UBEC, just get a $1 lm7805cv and hook it up
