Actually..

If you use EP2W and aim for 135 power, you wont have any major power problems with the weapons

My Cannon Excelsior - Tactical Captain - 60-62 total weapons drain (4x single cannon 4x turret = 40+32 minus 1st weapon)

Base energy 95, boosted to 114 (Perf, Efficiency and Borg Console) - powerlevel when shooting : momentarily down to 52 weapons (expected result)

Base Energy 95 + EP2Weapons (+24) = 125 (138) - Power levels when shooting : momentarily down to ~73 (expected)

Now for the interesting one

Base Energy 95 + EP2Weapons (+24) + Weapons Batt = 125 (213) - Powerlevels when shooting : Momentarily down to ~95

Explain that one, tried it with and without EPS Console with same result, easier to spot the lowpoint without EPS
