I’m powering through a USB port and my array is behaving strangely or constantly rebooting

Most probably your array is pulling more current than the USB port can handle and the port over-current protection is being activated. Hexabitz modules pull on average 20-25 mA. Normal USB ports supply 500 mA so they will power an array of 15-20 modules without problems.
