Thanks, I came too late into this discussion, yes the preferred voltage is  
3.3 V, but if decoupled by a emitter follower , maybe 4 V is a good  choice.
Can you please copy /past me the info?  Thanks Ulrich

do you need 4V or  3.3V?

I'd start with one of the modular parts we've been  discussing.  They 
typically have 9-18V input range and whatever you  want out.

Since I have the Mouser search page up, P78A03-0500 is $3.71  in qty 1, 
3.3V out @ 0.5A, 6-28V in.  ABout 85%  efficient
