    I know that true long-term Vaping Armageddon storage probably involves your subterranean geothermal-powered freezer, inch-thick hermetically sealed amber glass containers, an oxygen-depleted and nitrogen-rich atmosphere. And probably three ziplocks...

    What about us hobby-level mixers, that mix for ourselves and a few friends? 120ml of 100mg nic is lasting me a few months. Translucent HDPE bottles let me see how much nic is left easily and is pretty drop-proof. I know that nic is good in many plastics for short-term storage, but leaches it out somewhat for long-term storage.

    If I keep re-filling an HDPE bottle for convenience and safety in handling while mixing, I know that nic will be gone in a few months. Would re-filling the same bottle many times create any risk similar to using it in long-term storage? Easy enough to use it a while and replace, if there were any approximate guidelines.

    Are there any recommended non-breakable translucent bottles for nic?

    If you are asking this question then you must be like me and figure it may not be worth the convenience - reusing the bottle that is... A new one is not that expensive...

    On my last purchase I bought 250ml of 60mg nic and when it came in I transferred it to 8 30ml amber glass bottles. Why?

    I use about 30ml of nic a month at 60mg. So one 30ml bottle is opened - I mix my one month supply and the rest is waiting in the freezer till the next month. When I get down to the last bottle I will order some more. I am doing several things. I am reducing the handling of the nic. I am reducing its exposure to light, air, etc. I have everything pre-measured for one month of vaping or there abouts, etc... Simple, Simple, Simple...just the way I like it...

    I say use Glass !!! I swear I see a difference not only in storing my Nic in Glass over the last 7-8 months but I also put all my juice in Glass as well now and it just seems Better, cleaner, taste better, maybe it's just me but I swear it does.
