    Exactly my point.... I could buy expensive bottles and teflon tape to fix the lids, or buy the same bottles cheaper that don't need fixed.

    I've been using squonkers for going on 4 years, and the only bottle that failed was one of my dripbox 160 bottles that split at the seam. I have about a 100 bottles of various kinds for my collection of mods and will probably have that many still by the time I leave this earth.

    I've used 3 dripboxes for the last 2 years and I dropped them a lot, enough that the little metal loop that protects the bottle got bent all to hell. So it then scratches the bottles and provides a weak point to burst, and have destroyed about ten bottles.

    I did...
    I pushed a split in a bottle in my mini REO just a few weeks ago.
    Now...that bottle had been in there since Feb 2011 tho so I think it had a good life.

    Now that is some serious use - seven years. Wow.

    I'm guessing if it's that old it's the original type Reo bottle that Rob shipped with the mod?

    So, based on that, and the life expectancy of the average male in the USA, I really only NEED three spares.

    Yikes (on many levels).

    Rob would have laughed at that...then replaced the bottle.
    I hope he's doing well.

    Knowing Rob, the new bottle might have come with a mod attached to it.

    I wore one out on my coppervape, but those bottles are stiffer and easier to crack lol.
    Testing the silicone bottle in my new Nasy mod now :)

    I dedicate my DIY's to atty's/bottles, so rarely would need spare bottles for flavor changes. So it would kind of depend on the bottles NOW DAYS... the key is whether they are proprietary or if other bottles will fit in them. Cost might be another factor. Some are dirt cheap $, some $$, others $$$$$.

    The NOW Days because.....

    I bought 35 Reos (summer 2014 to summer 2015 mostly), have 60+ extra factory bottles for them ($$)... have never used any spares for failures even though in their day the Reos saw a lot of use 24/7 (for years). The last 5 Reos I used were P67's that had been upgraded to soft silicon bottles ($$), and none of them failed before I stopped using my Reos.

    Have 2 Pico Squeeze Mods with 20 extra bottles ($)... have never used any spares yet. But then I only use them when I go out on wee hours of the night errands.

    Also have 2 Sigelei Fuchai Squonkers that I bought 4 extra factory bottles for ($$$$$), none used yet. These mods are used 24/7.

    Don't have any extras for the 2 Capo Squonkers other the two different ones each of them came with... I won't be buying any spare bottles for them. These are also used 24/7.

    As for my DT-DS, it came with 2 bottles and I chose not to buy extras for it. It is used 24/7.

    I haven't worn out a bottle on any of my Coppervape mods, yet, but it's nice that they accept a standard 10ml juice bottle. You can find them everywhere - cheap too.

    Yes, I am on about bottle number 8 in my year old Coppervape. Every single one a split in the narrow neck of the bottle. Not sure what I am doing wrong there, but as was said, they're cheap.

    i split the seam on one of my first dripbox 160's while cleaning it, hot water or defect in the seam weakened it. other than that my cheap chinese bottles are still kicking.

    I have a $27 silicone bottle from the greatest bottle guy in all of Italy. The machining on the cap and the texture of the silicone is second to none. Unfortunately, it squeezes really easy which makes it messy to fill. Reinstalling it can make a mess too. I think it lacks backbone to properly suck the remaining juice back out of the atty.
    But, so far, it's lasted as long as the 50 cent bottle that I actually prefer. So, that's a definite win. :facepalm:

    No, but when I was squonking I labeled the Squonk bottles with my recipe numbers. Even if the recipe changes it will be close enough to the same.

    Oh, I label the unused bottles, "unused".
