What's the best way to lower 6 volts to 5 volts? Answered
I have a question. I want to be able to use 4 AAA batteries (6v) to power an IC. The IC's max voltage is 5.5.
Is there any kind of way I can use two resistors as a voltage divider to lower the voltage 1 volt or should I just use a diode(which would lower it by 1.4v)?
