I'm surprised a 0.5g resolution scale works well for you. I've found that adding or subtracting 0.5g dosing has considerable change in my shot times. I have an amazon cheapo scale and it's good to 0.1g. Maybe time to upgrade? It'll really help your consistency.

That light is most likely and LED and will probably burn for 50,000+ hours

If mine burns out I would not care in the least. In fact, I have suggested that the light be eliminated if a V2 is ever made.

I agree. But I actually did pick up an cheap Amazon 0.1gm res scale and went back to my trusty 0.5gm scale. I think I am getting much less than 0.5gm repeatability with it. The 0.1gm scale was slow and not likely more consistent.

Forgive me for not reading the whole thread before asking this. Is there anywhere I can purchase the dosing/ grounds cup that comes with the niche?

I'm not sure where to purchase the Niche dosing cup. However Acaia makes a 58mm dosing cup in 3 different sizes. The Medium would fit well. They are heavy and very well made. I purchased one prior to owning the Niche to improve my WDT and distribution. They actually fit better in the PF than the Niche cup.

That light is a small neon bulb replacement in 15 or 20 years if it's on 24 hrs per day would probably cost a few cents (if you wanted to bother).

They are ubiquitous in the UK and are used on all sorts of continuous duty applications.

Amazing how much the Indiegogo price fluctuates for non UK buyers based on currency exchange. When I placed an order 3 weeks ago it was I believe $602 with the total around $665. Now it's $630 so I'm guessing the total will be around $700 for US. Makes sense for the seller to fix the price based on their own currency.

I am using an extra switch, actually it's a plug-switch so I have mine completely off.

The same with the espresso machine which is also connected via a smart-plug!

Ok, I was under the assumption that if you want absolutely minimum retention (0.0g that is) you should not do RDT. DaveC may correct me if I've got it wrong.

FWIW, I've never done it with my Niche but then again, no static issues here by the seaside.
