Some capital ship lasers can be charged by holding down the fire button when personally firing them from the cockpit/turret. No AI ships or scripts can do this; the player must fire the weapon manually.

Damage / shot is always increased and the energy consumption rises by the same amount (so that efficiency is constant, regardless of charging).

Damage / second varies by laser when firing fully charged: (showing shield damage)
