Is there a manual for the Android app, that tells you things like "How to change the time for the first pour or the bloom for a particular brew tool" or "how do I setup my user id when I first download the app"? I had to figure the answers to these questions and many more through trial and error - a manual for the app would have been nice.
John B on Jan 11, 2016
Best Answer: I do not believe there is a manual. You are right about the app being confusing and not very user friendly. I had been in contact with support for other reasons and from what I'm told they are working on improvements, but it looks like there attention might be on improving other aspects of the scale first. (Ie. The firmware update) It's a shame that with such a great precision instrument and the popularity it has received that the app side is less than satisfactory.

Best Answer: Honestly I love the Acaia and I would buy it again. The app is very useful when dialing in a new grinder, and I just love the little features. The scale is large, has the helpful heat resistant pad (I've wrecked many grinders without thinking about the heat) it's just indespensible to me. I went from the Hario to this, if that's helpful. The price is steep but I would buy it again.

How long does the battery last on single charge?
Eric B on Aug 25, 2015
Best Answer: I charged mine upon opening the box about 4 or five months ago. Used it on average once a day. Haven't had to recharge it yet. Actually came across the charging cable on my desk last week and it took me a minute to remember what it device it was for.

How is it for weighing porta filters?
John S on Mar 7, 2017
Best Answer: Fantastic! I actually much prefer it over the Acaia Lunar (which is on the small side). Depending on the length and design of your portafilter, you may have to set it diagonally on the scale, however.

A Perfect PearlReview by Perry

This is a professional scale instrument of both extraordinary quality and utility. I've finally reached the point where dialing in a new bean often means fine tuning the dose from my grinder in 1/10th of a gram increments and this is the scale that makes it all very easy and very meaningful. Tare the portafilter and then make precise changes to find the perfect shot dosage. I also find it very useful for pour overs. (Posted on 7/10/2017)
Take your brewing to next levelReview by Tom

This scale is great. I have been slowly upgrading my setup. I had been brewing on Hario scale for a few years. I really like the Hario, the only thing I did not like was the delay in the scale when weighing. I saw the pearl had very fast response times and said....I want this scale. Little did I know about the best feature, the app. If you are a data geek who loves coffee, this is your scale. The app has brought a more scientific approach to me dialing in different brewing methods and coffees. The only knocks on this scale are 1. you must use the app. If you do not want to use the app when brewing look elsewhere. 2. The brewing chart is buried in the app...I do not get why they did not stick this upfront. . From my perspective if you have a consistent grinder, programmable kettle, the acaia is the next step to get your coffee to the next level. Lastly if you like peacocking your pourover's the app has good social features. (Posted on 3/14/2016)
