I've got a Yun project that I need to power through a battery, so that it can be usable while disconnected to my computer.
Any pointers on how to do this? Its been said here before to make sure not to provide more than 5V of power to the Yun or risk damaging it. To prevent that I have access to a 5V step-down converter from Adafruit: https://www.adafruit.com/products/1385
My background is in programming, so I'm a little new to the electronics aspect of this. Looking for any suggestions on why types of batteries to use - what voltages, what currents, etc. Any links to adafruit or sparkfun would be great.
Thanks for any help!
