Just about every single powermeter ever produced, whether it's a hub, crank, or a pedal, it needs to be serviced at some time over its operating life. Until now, you've needed to give up your precious meter for days, or even weeks, to get it worked on and returned. We've witnessed power fiends get despondent and desperate, trying to figure out how they can source a spare powermeter for the duration of the absence. Now, you're able to get a spare cap with all of the electronics before you send yours in. And shipping is simpler and cheaper when you don't have to stick a wheel in a box. Another improvement that comes with this change is a single CR2032 watch battery powers the transmitter. These batteries are easier to source and replace than the two 357 batteries found in the older hubs. The battery should last for approxima...
