What the ability does is it fires a spherical charged burst around your ship that extends for 5km. Anything caught in that blast will have cloaking disabled (main purpose of the ability) and it will also have shield damage dealt. Now, the damage won't be that large unless your ship is specced in flow capacitors (ideally through skill points and consoles). Without having your ship specced to use it you will notice a small drop in all of the enemy's facing shields. Also, the ability does not show up in the combat log.
