    Hi everyone. I am very new to the world of microcontrollers so I barely know anything. I have a quick question: Is a 9.6V 2000mAh battery ok to power my arduino uno board? And I would just have to connect the ground and the positive wires directly into the arduino ground and Vin pins right? I want to make sure before I do it so as not to burn up my board. Thank you for taking your time to help out a complete noob.
