Well, it seems that it would replace batteries. It's like having a Red Matter Capacitor with a 5-minute cooldown that doesn't take up a device slot. Perhaps it's not as good for cruisers, since on a cruiser you have slots for each battery type... whereas an escort can't have each type in its slots going into combat.

Still, though, you do have the benfit of it not costing you a battery each time, and that it applies to each sub-system which never hurts. I mean with regular batteries it is system-specific and they take up inventory space.
