Just tested again on another computer with higher technical specs (with my same account though).

Results are a bit different this time.
On this machine I can indeed perceive a higher drop in weapon power even when having >125 available. It usually drops in the first beam pulse to the expected minimum level considering 125 an absolute cap, but then climbs almost instantly to the levels I wrote on my previous post.

For example:
121 Weapon Power. Pop EPtW1 (136-137 maximum WP, 125 displayed). Fired 3 beams. Power dropped to 105 on first beam pulse, then climbed almost instantly to 115 (even before the second beam pulse). The stayed at about 115 till the three beams completed the cycle.
