In military organizations, a battery was a unit comprised of artillery and other heavy weapons. Its task was to provide long-range fire support for weaker units.
The Dominion organized ships into attack wings and batteries. Such units were used by Gul Dukat during the Second Battle of Deep Space 9 and were critical in bringing down the station's shields. (DS9: "Call to Arms")
Following the initial Klingon attack during the Raid on Trelka V in 2375, Kolana read from the sensors that the Dominion dispatched damage control teams, two defense batteries were out, and that the base had just dropped their primary shield grid. (DS9: "Once More Unto the Breach")
