Never used in Klingon canon.

Related verbs are {laQ} "fire/energize [e.g. thrusters]", {chu'} 
"activate", {tlhuD} "emit (energy, radiation) and - possibly - {Huj} 
"charge (up)".

The derived noun is {rIHwI'} "energizer".  Is this a control component of 
impulse engines?  (While still inside the Terran system, Kirk ordered 
"Energizers off!" and the Enterprise came to an apparent halt. Then Kirk 
ordered the warp drive engaged. [ST2])
