"Battery" is the term used to refer to two or more heavy pieces lined up on a file in an effort to control it. In this diagram, white doubles the rooks, creating a battery.

    Batteries are strategic decisions. An old chess saying goes: "It's very practical, but just not tactical!" (refering to batteries) However, many tacticians overlook the advantage batteries can create. This is why I believe that positional players will eventually dominate chess.

    White would not want to castle, because in the endgame the king is better placed in the center.

    Creating a battery has always proven a useful technique.
