OK I figured out whats going on.

Battle mode is a Toggle switch. It has no time limit or refresh like other skills. When Battle Mode is off you can use the EMP pulse which is super awesome for taking out BoPs trying to alpha strike your six. When Battle Mode is off you cannot use EMP but you CAN use Swarm Missiles and of course you gain + to weapons, weapon power and engine power with a - to aux power.

I kept clicking the Battle Mode button and seeing the 20 second cooldown thinking that was the length Battlemode lasted when it was in fact just the cooldown until I can turn it off. I guess they want a 20 second cooldown so you cant flip back and forth between skills super fast which would definitely be OP.

Mystery solved. Now I know; and knowing is half the battle.
