Information Glass Or Plastic....Chicken or the egg!
I have spent alot of time and money on this subject and still not found the answer....

Glass bottles for eJuice are more expensive but i find add a touch of class to the product, plastic bottles are cheap and easy to squeeze into your device but glass bottles normally have pipettes....

juice can react with plastic at a molecular level but only after long periods of time so is Glass the better option?

Glass is pretty and does make bottles look of higher quality, such as premium juices. However, they are a pain to use. The dropper is great if you are using an RDA or priming coils, but not so good for filling a tank. I'd take LPDE plastic bottles over glass if I was buying juice.

I'm with Bibs on this , plastic is much more user friendly and most of the pipettes in glass bottles are rubbish.

RE: Glass Or Plastic....Chicken or the egg!
I totally agree. I only ever use plastic bottles when I make juice. The glass bottles are a bit classy, but the droppers never reach to get the last drops of juice out, and it's a pain filling a tank using the droppers so they're really only good for dripping like bibs said. But honestly, squeezable plastic bottles are better for dripping too, since when you use a glass bottle you have to submerge the dropper in the juice, which gets a bunch of juice on the outside of the dropper, which then drips onto the coils making it harder to precisely drip. With a plastic bottle, I know exactly how much juice is going on the coils when I squeeze it because I'm in control of how long I squeeze it.

I would agree plastic seems to be more user friendly and easier to work with Smile quite a clear response Tongue

RE: Glass Or Plastic....Chicken or the egg!
I use the Triton Mini tank and it has really really small juice holes. So it would be impossible to fill it with that pipete that comes with the glass bottle. Even with some plastic bottles that come with a wide juice hole I find it really difficult to fill it. 
I think it is a matter of marketing after all. Glass is sexy

Big problem to have when the cheaper solution is better but looks worse Tongue

Plastic bottles don't have to look bad. While glass does have a slightly nicer look and feel to it, I think if you make really good looking labels for your juice then that really helps a lot.

Defo! We user clear/transparent labels on our bottles gives it a lovely clean glass look...
