Talking Open season

It is open season on radio shack diodes. Any of the rectifier diodes would work fine for this step down. If you want a higher current rating check the specs. A voltage rating over 10 volts and a current rating large enough to suite your wishes and go for it.

For Example:

3-Amp Diode
Model: 1N5402 | Catalog #: 276-1143
Decisive 200A surge. Type 1N5402. Peak Inverse Voltage (PIV) is 200.

or

PTC205 Silicon Diodes (3-Pack)
Model: PTC205 | Catalog #: 276-1114
Contains 2.5A, 1000-PIV silicon diodes
