you can make infused water without a special bottle - just put your fruit and ice in the glass (or pitcher). that might be a good way to go, to determine if you like infused water, before investing in a special container. they do look pretty, though.
how long you infuse the fruit kind of depends what you're putting in. some fruits disperse into the water fairly quickly (citrusy things, for example), other fruits take a bit longer to leech out into the water. Some fruits are best if you "muddle" them a bit (i.e. blackberries, or herbs like mint) to get the flavour to come out a bit better.
