I've done it with a step-down from 2 cells.  It works fine at 5.1-5.2v with no load.  5v with no load drops below 5v with load and resets the board, especially when you plug in a usb device.

Do you want to be able to charge the battery too?  Might be worth it to take one of these apart:

AC and DC input to charger, 5v DC output.
