Your batteries go into this state when the current draw is too great.  Do
you know the max amperage they can supply?  You may need another 4 wired in
parallel to split the current draw.

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!
