    Dear AVE juice,

    Over the past few months whilst browsing this sub-forum, I have seen multiple complaints and potential solutions for the problematic usage of your 30ml bottles. Upon receiving your wonderful juices, I was also infuriated with these bottles. The intent of this message is to add yet another incentive for you to consider banishing these terrible containers for a more user friendly solution.

    You are forcing customers to immediately transfer liquids to another bottle or suffer from carpel tunnel trying to force drops from a glass like prison. Do you want your crafted products sitting in bottles with the labels of other suppliers or getting mixed with that nasty dekang residue still lingering inside of whatever container is laying around? Is a dripping lid included with the bottle to tease the vaping community into thinking a mortal can actually squeeze these bottles?

    My intent is not to beat a dead horse, but to contribute to the preexisting momentum this issue already has.

    Please note that I will continue to buy your juices, even if you chose to ignore the outcry from your dedicated customers. Your juices are like nothing I've had before. Truly a cut above the rest.
    Please consider this and keep making great juice. :vapor:

    Best wishes,
    -Comakid

    With the 10+ of the same size bottle discount now, I'm wondering if I should just do that for the sale, so I don't have to worry about transferring liquid from 100ml to smaller bottles. The difference in price is in a tiny bit more, but I guess that's paying for the extra time to put that order together and the bottles. JMHO, but a clear squishy 30ml bottle would be welcome too

    +1 - I just refill my 10ml carry-around bottle from the 100ml bottle....my carry-around bottle is a medical grade plastic dripper bottle, as some other cheap plastic bottles do have a plastic smell to them which I do not like...DON'T change the green 100ml bottles please......just my 2-pennies

    I just syringe transfer (no needle) my bobas from the "hard bullet proof bottle" to an 18ml to carry and drip into my boge carto. Ohhhh yummy AVE. BTW just got some sweet tart. Yup, the snozzberries taste like snozzberries!!!!! Amazing stuff.

    Best 30ml bottles I've used so far are from Mike at RAWR.

    If you make the hole on the spouts wider and squeeze the bottom half of the bottle it will drip like a squishy bottle will.

    The 100ml bottles are similar in appearance to the 30ml, but the similarity ends there. They are very easy to squeeze.

    In case someone didn't see this comment from Porphy this morning (when asked when 30 and 100ml bottles would be back in stock)…

    Some good news for you mere mortals who can't squeeze the 30ml bottles.

    I like the 30ml green AVE bottles, you've just got to find the squeezing sweet spot, which isn't far from the base. Everyone tells me that natural light is an enemy of ejuice, AVE are the only company I've come across that appears to be addressing this issue with dark coloured bottles.

    Lol, referring to the bolded part. Love the juice but I got my 30ml in the glass bottle with NO dripping lid even! Imagine how stumped I was lol.

    OK, but why is anyone who doesn't like the 30ml feel they have to buy them again?

    If you buy one 30ml bottle it is $20.45 with standard shipping, that's 68 cents per ml. If you buy two 18ml bottles it is $24.45 with standard shipping, also 68 cents per ml. Unless my math is wrong or you just hate the 18 ml bottles more, problem solved. Just wish I had saved all my previous little green bottles since they may have gone extinct, the flat profile made them the most pocket friendly juice bottles ever.

    couldn't have said it better myself. i transfer juice from the 100ml bottle into the cool green 12ml or 18ml bottles. (which may be coming extinct)

    Thank God (I mean Porphy) that AVE juice comes in the 100ml bottle...........or i'd be ordering every 2 or 3 days.
    I have NO problems squeezing the 100ml bottles with the cap provided from AVE to transfer my juice to a smaller bottle.
    Then, I use the empty AVE 100ml bottles to put my DIY in.

    .......to each their own i guess.........

    It's max capacity vs. recommended shipping fill.

    All of the bottles I buy in bulk are marked at the recommended fill capacity (safe transport cap.), so the numbers I get are different then what I sell. I measure each bottle and sell it as the amount the liquid is when it reaches the neck (barring 100mls..I'll explain later). My 12ml bottles are sold as 10ml bottles. I would much rather market them as 10ml bottles but filling in the extra 2 mils gives the customer more with each shipment and staves off filing issues. The 30mls are 1oz max cap. and this is why you will find 1/2 a mil in the neck when you order, sometimes a few drips more. The hundreds on the other hand are 4oz. so you'll note they are usually only filled to the curve of the boston round bottle, this is because 4 oz. is actually 118ml if you receive a nearly full bottle on a 100ml order then we've added in extra as a freebie. The 18's are in the same boat as the 12's these are bought as 15ml bottles but have the extra 3 mils in there when purchased so why not fill it up for the customer? The only bottles that are bought as they are sold are the sample bottles. I don't buy the 6mls in bulk though... well not the considered amounts for bulk, only 500 or so at a time vs. 3000 or more.

    I have some new 30mls that just came in from another vendor. I'll be measuring them out today and checking them over. With any luck we'll have a newer 30ml bottle with a better ship vs. fill level.

    Note: I'll edit this when I get more information on the new 30mls.

    BTW, the new bottles have arrived. I'll get some pictures up in a few days of what they look like filled. The new bulk 6 mls are still on the fence because the label barely fits but the wifey likes them so count on them staying at least for awhile.

    i rather not be forced to buy 100ml of liquid even if i like it and end up buying that much at the end of the day.
    i cant see how that comment (and pic) rectifies op's dilemma.


    glad to hear about the new 30ml bottles. i never did the math on the 18ml bottles but thats a darn good idea!
