    Hello everyone. I was wondering if it's better to have a switching regulator before my motors and embedded electronics or to have the battery directly connected to the motors and the embedded electronics? I heard placing a switching regulator before your main circuits will provide better power to your circuits.

    What do you mean by better power?

    Post a diagram of your circuit, then we can begin to understand what you require

    The main purpose of a regulator is to stabilize the voltage level. If the battery voltage change from full charge to discharge can be tolerated by your circuits then you don't necessarily need a regulator.
