power on the NG board

Hello,

I just got my board in the mail from sparkfun.com

Can I use a 12V gel cell to power it or will that be too much for this tiny little board? I know it has a votage regulator on it I just don’t know if it will handle 12 volts or not?

Thanks in advance

The regulator is a 78m05 - 12V is no problem.
