Yes, if you think a Klingon is going to battlecloak, just keep firing torps at him. As soon as he cloaks, shields go down and any weapons fire already inbound will continue hitting him unless he gets 10k away from the person who fired it. Since the hull on a BoP is so weak, battle cloaking when there's a couple quantum torpedoes inbound will usually kill you.
Battle cloak is mostly effective when combined with Evasive Maneuvers so you can rush out of range and then cloak (whereas a Raptor would rush out of range and not be able to cloak, giving the Feds a chance to power up engines and give chase).
