What type of glue to use

I need to glue a plastic battery holder to a glass block. I have been using hot glue, but this does not always hold. What is the best kind of glue to use for this application? It needs to be a permanent hold.

I would try a two part epoxy (available at most home supply stores or WallyWorld). The slower 30 minute type should be stronger than the faster 5 minute. I would also consider the adhesive used to mount rear view mirrors to the windscreen of cars (available at auto parts stores), but I would check first to make sure it can bond to plastic.

Maybe not glue at all? The thin 3M trim tape from an auto parts store will pretty much stick to anything.

If it needs to be clear..thats another story...

Try contact cement if parts not subject to significant stess.
