One thing I've noticed is that if you're using 2 Aux2Bat as a keybind that you're repeatedly hitting so it pops at the earliest opportunity, every other rotation it doesn't drain Aux and provide a power boost. Yes, the boost from firing at 5 Aux isn't much, but it does exist.

What's happening is you get the cooldown reduction across the board for firing the power, but no power boost and no Aux nerf.
