Update: Here are the links for Part1Part 2Part 3, and Part 4.

This is obvious, but just to show an example of a fully functional Raspberry Pi running from a ridiculously old, broken, small battery that I discarded from my vacuum cleaner robot:

The voltage regulator I use converts from a range of 4.5V until 40V to the 5V required for USB. I bought it on Amazon Germany for around 10 euros: DC/DC BUCK Converter Regulator 4.5-40V 12V To 5V/2A USB Charger Voltmeter Display
