powering raspberry pi from lipo battery

can i use SBEC or switching voltage regulator it to power raspberry pi and arduino together , connecting with a 3s 2200mah lipo? does the electrical noise of sbec create problem for raspberry pi and arduino? i dont want 11v volt battery gets wasted by heat while conversion to 5 volt.

what options i have to power raspberry pi or arduino (5volt) from lipo battery? also does BEC coming from ESC is suitable for such charging?


May I introduce myself, I am TinySpider. I was build a couple of days ago after my creator got some ATTiny and needed to try them out. I was inspired by this  http://www.instructables.com/id/Computer-Bugs-Additional-Ideas-Tips-Tricks/step15/4-Spider/  

Basically I am a bare ATTiny85 some copper wire, two LED's and one 3.7V/50mAh LiPo battery.
