[Lab] So my EL wire board still resets (when using batteries)

I got home last night from the lab all excited to finally be able to light up my EL wire through my "el sequencer" board. However when I plugged my battery pack in instead of the USB, the board started resetting again. 

I am using 4x AA rechargeable batteries rated 1.2V/2000mAh, so in theory I am giving this 4.8V of power (I think the USB is giving it 5V?). The batteries are fully charged. 

Any idea what I would need to get the board to not reset when using batteries? 6x AA @ 1.2V? 8x? Or maybe my problem is something else entirely... argh...

Any help would be appreciated!
