    Don't know about brands and sources, but believe HDPE (high density polyethylene?) is the way to go, because it is least likely to degrade, and put things into juice that doesn't belong there

    My understanding is that Glass is best, see below for where I get mine, next best thing is PET plastic, which is a harder plastic but works fine for juice ( still squeezable) and has less chance of leaching nasty stuff into your juice.
    There is no doubt the softer bottles are easier and I have a lot of them to use up - but I wont ever buy them again.

    What he said, also LDPE is sometimes used, HD or LD is fine. Polyethylene (PE) is the best plastic for ejuice bottles IMO.
    Glass is nice but it is more expensive & unlike plastic it will break or crack if dropped, however for long term storage out of the freezer (in the freezer I think PE is just as good) glass is better.

    Hi Crisp.

    PET are the harder, clear bottles.
    HDPE are the softer opaque bottles.

    I use PET now, when I am not using glass :)

    These are PE plastic, as opposed to PET plastic (the entirely clear, 'hard' ones).

    I find this is a good way to trawl through FastTech's many bottle listings (using Google)..

    I prefer those long tip type for some atties but I like the regular dripper tip (snubby type) more, because I can apply more pressure & have juice flow faster to where it is needed, the long tips can be useful but flow slower IME.

    I thought the prices were pretty good, I do use unicorn plastic bottles for when I am out and about but stick with glass at home. I guess once you have them - they will last a very long time ( unless you break the glass) :)
    I buy the 100ml brown glass bottles for my Vit N and keep them in the freezer :)

    Yes, those long tips are frustrating - I have cut them off in the past.

    I prefer teaching people to fish, rather than giving them a fish. That's why I included..
    Obviously (I hope):
    • Add '-needle' (the '-' is important) to exclude the needle tip bottles.
    • Add '30' for 30 ml bottles.
    • .. (further adjust to need)

    I keep any blue or amber glass bottles from commercial ejuice, ones that I have bought and used, and recycle them for nic storage.
    Thorough rinsing with warm water several times, leave out in the sun to oxidise remnant flavour if any.
    Rerinse after that (dust etc).
    Away you go.

    Thats cheap margi i looked at pack my product and just for 1 x 30ml bottle was i think around 1.45 that was with a eye drip thing , i know they will last a long time and this is what i have to weigh up as there nearly twice as much as a plastic one
