It really works. Amazing. You just have to ignore the first 10 minutes or so of riding as it calibrates and then it gives surprisingly accurate data.

I bought this as an introduction to power meters after reading positive reviews from DC Rainmaker and other buyers online. Once set up it calibrated first time and now gives just the right level of info I need to track my efforts. The Isaac software is a bit bewildering so I stick with Garmin connect and strava to give me an idea of my performance. Best point us the interchanging between bikes which is a doddle. Definitely recommended.

review on power pod power meter

5

took awhile to calibrate power pod as the instructions was not applicable to newer garmin models overall the product provides a good insight on several aspects of power readings. unlike other power meters where user needs to change crank arms or fit sensors of varies sizes to the crank. this device is easy to mount (universal) below cycling computers.

Excellent piece of kit!

I was skeptical at first of a power meter which does not connect to crank or pedals, but after reading DC Rainmaker's in-depth review and now comparing to my mates who have power meters on their bikes, I can say that this little box on the handlebars does measure power very accurately. Easy to install and get up and running after pairing with speed and cadence sensors. I run it with a Garmin Edge 520 and it's great! I gave it 4/5 stars just due to the fact that it is a bit difficult to recharge frequently since you either need a long USB mini cord or to take the unit off the bike by unscrewing an allen key bolt in order to charge. Having said that, it only needs charging after 20 hours of running time. Great product for the price!

Arrived quickly to NZ - easy to install (just read the instruction fully) - don't forget you need a speed magnet/sensor on your wheel - GPS speed wont do it - download the newton software for fine tuning - I am finding using power to train very interesting and all the data that you can use. Great price and I really like data so well recommend.

This is a piece of junk! Not only does it work intermittently, if it works at all, but according the product manual, it has a 20 hour battery life, not the one I have. Twice now I have gone to use it (previous use less than 20 hours) only to find no charge in the battery. One the worst purchases I have made.

awesome peice of kit

Im blown away by the accuracy and how fast this power meter responds to different situations. Its as accurate as my Power2max spider based power meter. I also use it on my mountain bike with no issues. Lest get one thing straight, even though the instructions say sync it up and ride (sync was super easy by the way, got it first time...you have to reset the default setting via your desktop first. The more accurate the information the better the results. For example fist ride I knew the number were way low after doing my 8 minute set up ride, but the default was for the road bike with 23mm tyres on a smooth surface ...I was riding my mountain bike...DOH. So with a couple of minutes...its easy actually..i reset the default for that bike to be 2.3inch tyres at 24 psi and corrected my weight and the bikes rate and position on the bike (hoods) and surface (rough asphalt was the closest setting) its works perfect and I cant believe how it can make instant adjustments for the changing of surfaces even. One more thing, when you swapping this from bike to bike it will sense that you have synced this up to different speed and cadence sensors and then automatically assume the different profile you have set up. So you will need different speed cadence sensors on each bike (i use garmin wireless with no issues). and you will have to reset the deflaut for each profile. while this may sound a hassel, its 5 minutes wrok per bike and you only ever do this once...add the cost of other power meters up and if you are like me with three other bikes...it makes the five minutes worth a lot of money per minute...
