Pololu 5V, 6A Step-Down Voltage Regulator D24V60F5
This synchronous switching step-down (or buck) regulator takes an input voltage of up to 38 V and efficiently reduces it to 5 V with an available output current of around 6 A. Typical efficiencies of 80% to 95% make this regulator well suited for higher-power applications like powering motors or servos, while high efficiencies are maintained at light loads by dynamically changing the switching frequency, and an optional shutdown pin enables a low-power state with a current draw of a few hundred microamps. The regulator’s output voltage setting can also be lowered by adding an external resistor.
Alternatives available with variations in these parameter(s): continuous output current

Just about every integrated switching regulator datasheet I come across advertises how easy it is to use the chip, which is probably a good sign...
