    What would it take to power the Arduino Breakout from a 3.7v lipoly battery?

      Hi All, as the title says, I'm looking to make my project more portable, and have been looking into using a lithium polymer battery for the board. I'm using the full-sized arduino breakout, but I've seen the mini-breakout board powered by a 3.7v lipoly.

       

      What would that take? Is it as simple as converting the voltage to 5v and powering it through the usb? Has anyone done it already?

       

      Cheers,
