    Hey guys,

    Sorry if this has been covered already, but I just had a question about the new bottles. All of the juices I bought previously to Nicoticket came in glass bottles, 15mL and 30mL. After getting your plastic bottles, I had a sneaking suspicion that those glass bottles weren't truly 15 mL (side to side it was very apparent). Thus, I bought a new '15mL' bottle of a juice I like and transferred it to one of your 15ml bottles (notice how the other 15mL is in quotes) and it came out to a whopping ¾ full. I also did it with a 30mL and I don't have an estimate for what was missing, but it sure wasn't full.

    I'm not talking like full to the rim, but with a little breathing room.

    I guess my question is two parts:

    1) Do your plastic 15mL bottles hold any more than 15mL? Like, at least 3.75mL more?

    2) If your answer to 1 is no, are the new glass bottles the exact same as the ones the rest of the industry are using meaning we will be getting less?

    I know you guys have our backs, I'm just worried.

    Thanks for taking the time guys!

    Vape Happy,
    Cullin Kin

    While it is well known that Clark and Co. overfill their bottles, I also had the same questions as yourself. I can tell you this with out a doubt that all juice bottles are not created equal. How do I know this? I used one of these.

    There are a few vendors out there that do not actually deliver what they advertise. Take comfort in the fact that Nicoticket is not one of them and I am sure you / we have nothing to worry about. Also take comfort in the fact that Clark and Katy do their homework.

    Graduated cylinders can be purchased on Amazon. The plastic ones are more reasonably priced than glass. These come in very handy for mixing juice blends.

    Being a Chief Engineer in the water treatment field, proper measurement is part of my business ...;)

    Oh yeah, totally! I use graduated cylinders in my chemical engineering lab every day. I could probably just take one from their stock of new ones lol.

    I totally trust Mista Clark and Co. lol I just wanted to be sure because up until this point, I thought I was getting 15mL of juice but was sadly mistaken. :(

    We really don't advertise the fact that we overfill bottles because, to us, it's just what we do - but yes, all the LDPE bottles we use presently are very very generous with regard to the overfill. All of the bottles are overfilled 2-3ml. It may not *seem* like much, but, any penny pinching traditional businessperson would call it "waste." Now - our definition of waste is a bit different... we figure if we pay for a bottle, we should fill it - air in a bottle = waste. That will never change. I have to be truthful, I haven't analyzed the overfill with the new glass bottles. I have asked that the bottles themselves be overfilled, but I think the amount of overfill will be constrained by the bottles themselves. How much, I am not sure - but the bottles will be "full" - or - as "full as we can reasonably make them." How that translates into actual liquid volume - I have to be truthful - I have no idea (I haven't tested it yet). Whatever it is, be assured we will *NEVER* short a bottle, and we are planning to overfill - I just can't say how much for sure.

    18ml+ in one of our 15ml bottles isn't uncommon at all.

    Saweeet! Thank you! This is why I love you guys!

    I'll have to do some measurements in my lab to see what the actual volume of the juice included in a full glass bottle are. By full, I mean at least to the bottom of the neck. Will the dropper be mandatory on your new bottles? I know the dropper takes up a lot of space and that could account for part of the difference.

    At least to begin with, the 15ml glass bottles will have a dropper. The 30ml and 60ml bottles will not.

    My thoughts exactly! Hopefully this becomes an option. Even 200 would be a great compromise.

    I remember Clark saying something about 120ml bottles for a limited time at some point, though that may have changed....

    I've received NT bottles with juice IN THE DRIP TIP! How...how do you do that? I imagine that when you fill one of those plastic bottles you take the plastic nipple off and fill, then put the nipple back on. Then how the hell is juice in there!? Nicoticket overfill magic, thats how.
