    Paid about $13 total with shipping at DPSNutrition.com, been putting it to good use for a few weeks, and now all of a sudden I'm noticing leakage when I'm blending shit in it. :mad:

    A few drops here and there, nothing too serious, but it's enough to make a mess especially if you're blending bananas along with the milk and powder. :mad: And when I'm just carrying water in it on my backpack, water would leak out when I'm out walking somewhere. :mad:

    Does anyone else's bottle leak or is it just mine? Thought this would be an awesome product considering how most other shaker bottles are $3-5 on the market, but I'm deeply disappointed. For what it's worth, the "whisk" ball works pretty well though. :hs:

    And the lid with the stay-open flip cap works well.

    Everything about the bottle is great with the exception of the leakage. :hs:

    you have to snap the lid down...



    I didn't realize at first that it snapped down, so I thought I had to apply pressure all the time.. but the lid stays pretty secure when snapped on.



    these are fucking awesome btw. got mine a week or two ago and I've used it every single day since. Even when I'm at home.

    had 2 for the last year, no leaks, you don't need to be so rough when you blend

    update: contacted the blenderbottle customer support, told them my situation, they shipped out a brand new bottle on the SAME day they received my email :bowdown: , didn't ask that i ship back my defective bottle :bowdown:

    that's some fine customer support right there :bigthumb:

    if the new bottle doesn't fail on me again, i will definitely take back anything negative i've said about Blender Bottle :cool:

    Last nite while reading this again I thought "Hmm peanut butter ... " so I put a couple teaspoons in my shake last nite. Man it was pretty tasty ...
    so then I added a teaspoon or so of chocolate milk mix ... man it was like a reeses peanut butter cup blizzard only it wasn't frozen!!

    I can't wait to try other stuff ... I have some left over turkey ...

    PS Don't use chunky peanut butter, the chunky stays at the bottom ...
