Kickr ’18 / v5 – Firmware v3.5.2 / v4.2.5

If you have a 2018 or v5 (2020) Wahoo Kickr, a new firmware came out for them last week. It’s not a massive change, but it’s awesome if you use the smart trainer in a light sensitive environment. This isn’t usually an issue for me, but when we have guests staying in the basement, I have to unplug it to make it easier for them to sleep.

I appreciate this improvement, as might some people I know. Out of curiosity, is there a downside to just unplugging the (easily accessible) DC power connection from the Kickr after each use? I’ve been doing that for a couple years (mostly to limit energy consumption) and haven’t encountered issues that I know of.

That’s 2.6 kWh/year. I can drive my car over 11 miles on that much electricity.
