    The Chinese are not required to mark their containers with recycle symbols, years working in the recycle industry, I know the diff between PET and HDPE

    Wonder why Chinese don't have to mark their containers...?

    I store my nic in the freezer in the HDPE bottles that it arrived in, if it arrived in a PET bottle, I would most likely transfer it to a HDPE bottle first, the pop it in the freezer, there's a couple of reasons for that, not least being that PET is more brittle when frozen.

    That glass is better than HDPE at room temperature is not something I doubt, nic may break down plastics over time (although I am yet to experience a PE bottle being degraded by juice enough to cause a leak) but in the freezer where molecular activity is virtually halted, any "breaking down" is going to be infinitesimal (in other words virtually non existent). So I prefer to store my nic, in the freezer, in the HDPE bottle, then transfer it to a glass bottle when I need to to have some on hand (at room temperature) for mixing.
    The advantage of using the HDPE bottle for storage in the freezer is that if it is dropped it is far less likely to break than a glass bottle that has been frozen is, glass is more easily broken when it is frozen than at room temperature.

    Considering what we used to inhale when smoking, any minuscule amounts of chemicals from a HDPE bottle that has been frozen, is probably far less harmful than a few puffs on a single cancer stick IMO.
    I agree, I haven't bothered with glass bottles for about 4 years now when I dropped one on a concrete floor. Talk about heartbreaking.

    It's pretty easy to tell the difference between PET & HDPE/LDPE.
    PET is usually clear, even when colored & easy to see through, LDPE can be see through but is "milky", not clear, HDPE is usually not see through at all although if it is it would be even more milky than LDPE, the only real difference between HDPE & LDPE is the density (this is what LD & HD stand for). The other way to tell is that PE is a softer more pliable plastic than PET, even HDPE is easier to squeeze than the same sized PET bottle in most cases. PET also usually has thinner walls than PE bottles do.

    Try your local chemist, I got some from a chemist when I first started, they were 100 ml brown bottles and only cost 50c ea, worth a try

    There's peace of mind using glass to store liquid in especially vaping liquids and nic, I've seen what pure nic does to plastic and even though we only use 10 % nic I store everything in glass.
    Even my Pg and Vg are in glass bottles at room temperature and all my juice is in glass, my 30 ml juice bottles are glass with glass droppers. I wash everything out with soapy water and rinse really well then put em in the oven for half an hour on 180 degrees to dry and sterilize and I've never had a problem.
    Could be just in my head but I never worry about plastic poisoning because of my obsession with glass containers.
    You can reuse them indefinitely and glass bottles are so cheap, plastic has it's place like transporting but as soon as I get a delivery it goes straight into glass bottles.
