|Fill 'em up!
When placing power in the batteries of Andromedan ships, some players may be tempted to fill the batteries up 'evenly', placing equal power in each battery.
However, you gain more flexibility by filling up the batteries one at a time, so that you have a mix of full and empty batteries, with only one part-filled.
If you then receive damage to your batteries, you can then choose whether to take that damage on a full or an empty one, depending on the tactical situation. You may anticipate a Power Absorber cascade, in which case you keep the empty battery; alternatively, you may be short on power, so you keep the full one.
