I use it all the time. Wife and I like to ride mountain trails with a lot of rocks. Staying in high power can cause the accelerator pedal to be touchy which results in bucking feeling. Low power allows the driver to keep stronger pressure on pedal which eliminates the touchy aspects of the throttle and provides for smoother ride. Once you get to smoother portions of trail you can push throttle and gain some aspect of high power. I real like this feature and use it all the time. Wife will also ask me to deploy regularly.

The rocky sections will smooth out if you just go faster 🤪

Yep !

There has only been one time that I would have used Low power (mine is disabled due to tune) and that is last week when completing Walden's Ridge - there were a couple times i would have used it to smooth out some of the more technical rock sections to avoid any jumpiness.

I pretty much ride nothing but rocks, and have zero use for "low power". I tried it once when new just to see what it was about. It should be called "no power". Couldn't even climb a hill. Kind of like reverse is in these machines, only worse.

I'm with BobX2, other than my low/high power reverse now having the same throttle map as the low gear maps, I am more apt to using low power reverse to back off the trailer.

Please confirm. Can you switch from low to high or vice versa on the fly? Or is key off engine off required.

The switch from low to high power, or vice versa, will only take affect when you come to a stop. The engine can be running and in gear.

I've never used low power but I did come from a talon/pioneer and turbo yxz so I know how to lock my ankle lol. The problem with low power in the stock krx tune is it never goes to full power in low power mode. It could be a problem if you get in trouble and need full power. That is adjustable in the dynojet tuning if you know what your doing.
