A sleek contoured bottle design including a body portion having a
dividing wall extended from the base portion to past the top of the
bottle; a first chamber for holding a first liquid; a second chamber for
holding a second liquid; two lids, one lid with dual flip-up spouts and
optional dual straw attachments and a second lid with a two to one design
flip up spout with optional dual straw attachments for extracting liquid
from both the first and second chamber or extracting liquid from both the
first and second chamber and liquids combine upon consumption from the
2-to-1 flip-up spout design and adapted to be operational with respect to
the base portion of the bottle.
1. A body, comprising: a body portion having a dividing wall extending
from the base portion to extend past the top of the bottle; a first
chamber for holding a first liquid; cooperating with a first flip-up
spout and optional first straw attachment; a second chamber for holding a
second liquid; cooperating with a second flip-up spout and optional
second straw attachment. The 2-to-1 flip-up spout lid design allowing
first and second liquids from the first and second chambers to mix
together upon consumption.
2. The bottle according to claim 1, wherein the first chamber is a same volumetric size as the second chamber.
3. The bottle according to claim 1, wherein the first chamber and the second chamber are the same height.
4. The bottle according to claim 1, wherein having a lid designed with dual flip-up spouts and dual straw attachments; and wherein, the first flip-up spouts is positioned on a first chamber and the second flip-up spout is positioned on a second chamber.
5. The bottle according to claim 2, wherein the lid with dual straw attachments with first straw attachment positioned on a first chamber and the second straw attachment is positioned on a second chamber.
6. A method for manufacturing a bottle, the method comprising the steps of: Forming a body portion having a dividing wall extending from a base portion to extend past the top of the bottle; Forming a first chamber for holding a first liquid, the first chamber cooperating with a first flip-up spout and first straw attachment; and forming a second chamber for holding a second liquid, the second chamber cooperating with a second flip-up spout and second straw attachment. A second lid the two-to-one design is available and can serve the same purpose as the first and second flip-up spouts however, the two-to-one flip-up spout will allow liquid content to merge together as one liquid at the spout tip.
 1. Field of the Related Art
 The present disclosure relates to bottles, and more particularly, but not exclusively, to a sleek contoured designed bottle having dual chambers with a dividing wall extending past the top of the bottle and for separately dispensing liquids. The bottle is designed with 2 interchangeable lids. The first lid is a 2-n-1 design that has separate flip-up spouts for extracting liquids from both the first and second chamber. The second lid, a 2-to-1 flip-up spout design that has two spouts for extracting liquids from both the first and second chamber and merge into one spout allowing liquids to mix together upon consumption.
 2. Description of the Related Art Liquid storage containers have been provided in numerous shapes and sizes for various liquid commodities. The most ubiquitous liquid storage containers are presently plastic and provide multiple shapes and sizes with mass production capability and recyclable materials. A popular liquid storage container is a drinking bottle. Typically, most individuals utilize a drinking bottle formed of a molded plastic material. The most common type of molded plastic drinking bottle employs a beck portion supporting a removable cap and a chamber connected to a neck portion. These plastic drinking bottles are reasonably durable, are reusable with most liquid drinks of choice, are economical to make and to purchase, and are easy to use (in that an individual can grip the bottle with one hand and take a drink via the outlet means without spilling the liquid).
 In particular, sports bottles have become very popular over the years as molded drinking bottles. Sports bottles are containers which generally have a removable lid, are relatively tall and easy to hold and have a cap or lid positioned at the top portion of the sports bottle. Sports bottles have become quite popular given the increased exercise activity of individuals. Sports bottles are convenient because they do not leak and can be readily carried or placed without fear of spilling the liquid contained therein. To use a sports bottle, one simply places the desired liquid in the sport bottle and closes the lid and/or inserts a straw. Thereafter, whenever it is desired to acquire liquid, one merely opens the lid to allow access to the liquids. Many individuals who exercise are interested in workouts of extended durations, at various levels of intensity. Thus, many individuals have available or even carry several bottles of water or other liquids to replenish body liquids lost from sweating. Thus, individuals may desire more than one type of drink to replenish the body liquids lost from sweating when engaging in one or more intense work activities, without inadvertently mixing the liquids.
 Furthermore, one of the most critical needs facing individuals engaged in sports is the continuous supply or intake of different liquids (e.g., drinking water, sports drinks, energy drinks, protein shakes, etc.) while they exercise. During extended exercise activities, individuals face serious dehydration problems and the loss of competitive capabilities unless they continuously replenish the fluids lost during such exercise activities. Because of increase liquid consumption for exercise, sports etc. the need to have more than one container of water, sport drinks and other thirst quencher have also increased. Thus, there is a need to provide a bottle that is capable of dispensing more than one type of liquid separately, without inadvertently mixing the liquids.
 Consequently, traditional sports bottles present a limitation in that they do not allow an individual to enjoy a plurality of different liquid drinks separately from each other, without the liquids mixing. Presently, many dual chamber bottle lack the ability to effectively provide two or more liquids to an individual without the liquid content mixing.
 Traditional dual chamber bottle do not provide for effective means of purposely separating two liquids desired to be consumed by an individual. In other words, traditional dual chamber bottles allow for inadvertent mixing of liquids, even though the individual desire to consume only one drink at a time. Thus, despite other practitioners' efforts to provide improved systems, there remains nonetheless a continuing need in the art for an improved liquid supply apparatus for use by individuals, such as, but not limited to, individuals engaged in sports or exercise activities.
 The present disclosure is intended to overcome the drawbacks of conventional and or traditional dual chamber bottle systems by designing and manufacturing a bottle that will successfully separate liquids without allowing inadvertent mixing. The bottle is a single container having dual chambers for different commodities and a means for selecting between them and blending together if desired during consumption. It is further desirable that that such a container be easily manufactured, filled, and assembled. In particular, the present disclosure relates to a bottle for separately providing two liquids to an individual, without the liquids mixing. The present disclosure further relates to manufacturing a dual chamber bottle that prevents the inadvertent mixing of liquids with one lid design and allows two liquids to be consumed together through a unique two-to-one flip-up spout design.
 The present disclosure provides a bottle including a body portion having a dividing wall extending from the base portion to past the bottles top; a first chamber for holding a first liquid; a second chamber for holding a second liquid.
 The present disclosure provides two lids, one lid with dual flip-up spouts and dual straw attachment and a second lid with a two-to-one design flip-up spout with dual straw attachment.
 Further scope of applicability of the present disclosure will become apparent from the detailed description given hereinafter. However, it should be understood that the detailed description and specific examples, while indicating preferred embodiments of the present disclosure, are given by way of illustration only, since various changes and modifications within the spirit and scope of the invention will become apparent to those skilled in the art from this detailed description.
