Optimice/Optirat GenII Standard Bottle and Cap

Compact Large Volume Water Bottle

This water bottle is a game changer. Traditional water bottles with a rubber stopper require a strong downward push and twist to get the stopper inside the bottle, and then a strong push on the stopper and sipper tube to get the stopper out.

This water bottle has a drilled cap, where the diameter of the drilled hole is just the right size to hold the water in place through water surface tension. The unique rubber threads at the seal minimizes cage bottle leaks.  The wide mouth allows for easy filling of water;  the wide low profile of the bottle means it is difficult to topple yet contains ample volume of water for 5 mice for a 2-week cage change.

Recommendations: This  is the typical water bottle chosen by our customers. Two bottles are used per cage in the Optirat GenII. Both the Optimice and Optirat GenII autowater cages can accommodate the use of these water bottles, for example when medicated water or weanlings are being accommodated.
