  • The Lunar Base is a fortified replacement base for the Acaia Lunar for heavy or commercial use situations when additional protection is necessary to maintain accuracy. The enlarged profile of the Lunar Base shields the scale from heat and moisture in shallow drip trays, and prevents drip tray lips and backsplashes from interfering with the movement of the scale's weighing surface.

    The polycarbonate outer base also eases movement of the scale across slotted drip trays, a bonus for workflows that involve frequent repositioning of the Lunar. The Lunar Base includes a replacement aluminum inner base, polycarbonate outer base, and all necessary hardware and tools for installation. The outer base protrudes 4mm on each side of the Lunar to prevent interference.

    • Dimensions: 110mm (W) x 110mm (H) x 78mm (D)
    • Contents: Lunar Base, Lunar Backplate, Hex Key, 6 Screws

Great product

Great design. Should've got sooner!

More than expected.

I use my Lunar scale on the drip tray of Profitec 500 espresso machine to weigh shots. With the 2 - 6-oz. cups I use, the scale must be positioned carefully to avoid the group head lever hitting a cup. This means less-than square on the drip tray (hangs over a little). This less than perfect platform has always caused the scale to hunt a little for tare...drifting up 0.1 to 0.3 and back to zero before the starting the shot. I ordered the base to protect from excess moisture exposure on the tray, having had one H20 lock-out on the scale. The base works well for protection as expected but the unexpected bonus is that it stabilized the scale on the drip tray making it tare and hold tare perfectly every time. Well made product! Great service from Eight Ounce as well! Thanks.

Great addition to Lunar Scale

It's great addition to my original Lunar scale. I now realize that I should have gotten this way back when I purchased the scale. Easy to install, great construction. Very happy.

Almost required

So the base is almost a necessity but something that I just found out that kinda bothers me is that the heat pad that comes stock with the salvage is not compatible with the base. It a bit too long on the side which interferes with the weight and scale.

Works as designed

This has been on my Lunar from day one and I use it daily on my drip tray. It has done its job by providing accurate and reliable measurements day in, day out.

Harlan T. (New Brunswick, Canada)
Another Lunar accessory that ignores other design elements.

The upgraded baseplate interferes with the non-slip mat that's included with the scale. It seems that Acaia has designed a lot of the Lunar accessories with complete disregard for compatibility when trying to use them in tandem.
