Hello. Can I run my Arduino Uno off of 12 Volts DC? And if I can, how?

Put the 12V in the DC input jack.
If you are running other stuff as well off the 5v line the regulator might get hot and need a bit of an extra heat sink.

Ok. I've seen people plug a battery pack strait into the controller. Does that have to be 5 volts, or is it a different power level?

So how would you add an extra heatsink? Anything special I would need to use? I mean, I don't want to damage my board.
