Developer Kit Regulator

I really like the regulator size that comes in the developers kit for the ping sensor.

I have a few questions:

1. Any idea when these will be available separately on the store.

2. What is the specs on the regulator especially the input voltage range.

Thanks

You can buy these on ebay. I did this before I discovered ubec's and built a distribution board. This keeps you from having to cut wires. I know you can pass 7.4 and bring it down to 5v with the ones I bought. I want to say that the will bring up to 20ish v down to 5v.

Been a while since I spec ' ed them out. I personally think the ubec and distribution panel is a better option but that is just me.

Input voltage is probably much higher than the EZB4 max voltage so I wouldn't worry about maxing it out (probably around 30V)....

I think i will go the distribution panel route.

Will make my life way easier.
