Ok so i have a little issue that i could do with a little help.
I have 8 servo's, an arduino mega and a 4 AA Battery Pack.
the servos power and ground arre connected to the battery pack, signal wires going to the Mega. The mega is powered via USB.
Heres the issue. If the mega is not being powered, when i turn the power on to the servos, they give a satisfying twitch on turn on ( as they always do when things are good ). I can leave it like that with no issue.
Once the arduino is powered, the two outer springs of the battery pack, the + and - , begin to get hot. So hot they turn red and even change shape a little. 3A wires are connected to the battery pack so i know thats ok.
What could be happening?
