I am trying to create a small project involving controlling a solenoid via an Arduino Uno clone with a single power source.
I currently have it set up to power the Arduino with a power adapter rated for its purpose while the solenoid is powered by a higher voltage battery. They are connected together through a relay switch.
My goal is to have a single power adapter be able to power both devices. I'm not sure what the correct method would be to do this properly, safely, and inexpensively.
Listings from Amazon of my equipment:

- Relay: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LW15A4W
- Solenoid: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07VC6R4DH
All my knowledge on this comes from reading these forums and watching videos so any help is appreciated!
