    OMG I hate the Gorilla and Unicorn Bottles so much... yes they look all kewl etc but the way the mess drives me up the bloody wall! I like to use the Coilmaster 521 Plus Tab for building and wicking and it's not cheap... I have already lost two of them to juice spills... and my 3rd one is not looking good and it's all because of the stupid design of the Bottle!

    I won't mention the marks on my t-shirts and shorts thanks to trying to do a refill out in the wild!

    OK I have finished ranting for now...

    They irritate me as well.
    I've had no less than 3 of them pop open (entire top cap) and spilled a good 60 ml plus of my 100ml of juice.

    I just want to add though that they annoy me less than dropper bottles...

    Exactly this but not quite as it wasn't my forgetfulness that caused the issue to begin with :D

    Auth Chubby problems have this problem alot less on the OEM bottles, but yes, still better than glass drippers.

    100% agree.... they are even worse! The original bottles we all knew and loved were the best... then the kiddy proof stuff started... :-(

    The most practical I have found are these caps.

    You cant sterilise the gorilla bottles in a microwave steriliser or very hot water. Lost 5 bottles the first time i tried to clean them for DYI.

    These too are not perfect; they tip doesn't fit in a few fill holes (much like my PYRO RDTA).

    Used to use them but mine leak at the cap. I've used about 60 of the damn things. The best for me are the soft HDPE bottles that do not have the kiddy proof cap. They don't leak and you can fill a tank in a sec. The PET version of this ain't too bad either and that one does have a kiddy proof cap.

    Sick of the Gorilla bottles too, squeeze too hard and that top cap pops off and you have juice everywhere. I think they'ed be better off if that drip nozzle was wider. Shoot man, we don't vape 1 ml of juice a day!

    I agree with most of you here, they are all better than the glass dripper bottles.

    I'd think this puts a gap in the market for a new bottle.

    "Most" practical. Not perfect unfortunately but I hate having to squeeze so hard to get 0.2ml out :D

    This is a concentrate bottle from Inawera in Poland. It seems to made of HDPE, it has a kiddy proof cap and a very sharp point ideal for small fill ports. It's almost clear so you can see the juice. You can fill your tank very quickly. If this could be made in a 60ml chubby bottle shape, I think it'd be ideal. 20181206_160210.jpg

    While I like everything about the Gorilla v3 bottles, the only problem I have is that after dripping and setting the bottle down, there are two or three "pops" of juice that I can literally watch working their way up the needle tip spout. After a little while, it pools on the top of the spout cap. If I don't wipe these away, they drip down the side when re-dripping, or pool all around and into the threads when the bottle cap is on. Drives me crazy. The original v1 caps were far better..

    The 60ml chubby where the tip comes off...
    Lots of the internationals use them.
    I've lost my cool and flung the bottle on more than one occasion.
