MAKE subscriber S1axter, of myBitBox, has put together details on building a basic, filtered 5v power regulation unit based on the ubiquitous LM7805 voltage regulator. You can either build it out of a handful of parts you can get at your local electronics shack, or buy a little kit he’s put together.
