If u go Infiltration tree, u can also use this ability for some Force regen, as well as reduce the cooldown to 45 seconds.

Speaking as a Shadow-Infiltration @ 40th level playing v2.8: Infiltration gives this ability some help. Around 22nd level, when you get Blackout, the tree has a skill which will allow you to use Blackout out of stealth. This gives 15 points of force and triggers shadow respite. Around 29/30th level you get CD help. For the Burst DPS Shadow-Infiltrator who has to balance our Force Pool with our Burst damage, Blackout is helpful. Once Blackout can be used out of Stealth, it will generate 39 additional points of force over 6 seconds every 1 minute CD (it triggers Shadow Respite & gives 15 points when triggered). Once I Start seeing "Insufficient Force" error text, I trigger Blackout.

Using it in stealth is sometimes helpful also. At 35th level, I saw some imperial 55th level NPCs who saw through my stealth and wiped me before I could turn around and leave the area. I was at least 25 meters away from them. If I would have triggered Blackout, I would have been 49th level stealth to their 55th level detection. Keeping that in mind, I have been doing better at triggering blackout while in stealth. That includes PvP. but it is hard to say how much it is helping me. If I am bolstered to 55th and trigger Blackout in stealth, I have a stealth level of 70? Whatever is going on in PvP, I have not been detected in close proximity situation after using Blackout while in stealth so far.
