Running STM32f4 Discovery Board from a DC voltage (Beginners question)

Hello,
My project is to drive some SPI external sensor with 3.3V and read its data. 
Since this sensor consumes a higher current that a single I/O can supply I intend to drive this sensor using 3.7V battery.


As noted in STM32f4 Discovery Board datasheet the board requires a 5V power supply.
After all I am intrested to operate all the project (Board +sensor) from a single voltage level battery/batteries. 

Could it be a 3.7V battery  (<5V)? 
Or may be 7.4V (two batteries in a series) is better (>5V)?

Thank you!
Tal
