What is a compatible inkjet cartridge?
A 'compatible' cartridge is a brand new cartridge that has been manufactured by a company other than the printer manufacturer, often costing a lot less than 'original' cartridges. Ink2U branded compatible cartridges are guaranteed to perform at least as well as the 'original cartridge' they are intended to replace.
"You can get better prints by using non-original ink cartridges and papers, and make huge savings. Printer manufacturers often give ominous-sounding warnings about compatibles, but don't be afraid to try them." Which? Consumer Magazine September 2002.
What is a remanufactured cartridge?
Using state of the art equipment and manufacturing techniques, we produce our own brand of remanufactured cartridges. By doing this, we can ensure that both the quality and value is consistently excellent. An Ink2U branded 'remanufactured' inkjet cartridge is an empty 'original' inkjet cartridge that has been factory cleaned, refilled to the maximum capacity* and print tested for quality.
*e.g. an original HP 17 cartridge is filled with 15ml of ink.
An Ink2U remanufactured HP 17 cartridge is filled with 39ml of ink.
What is an original (OEM) cartridge?
An 'original' or 'OEM' cartridge is a cartridge which has been manufactured by the same company that made the printer. A cartridge manufactured by Epson for an Epson printer for example. 'Original' cartridges often cost more than 'compatible' or 'remanufactured' cartridges.

Does using remanufactured or compatible inkjet and laser cartridges void my warranty?
Major printer manufacturers normally sell printers at or below cost. They make their profits from selling the cartridges. Formerly, once you bought your expensive new printer you had no choice, but to buy one of their cartridges after yours ran dry.
You are cutting into their primary source of profit by using compatible or remanufactured cartridges. Because of this, they will threaten to void your warranty if you use compatible or remanufactured cartridges. They are simply trying to protect their own interests anyway they can. It is however strictly ILLEGAL for them to do so, they CANNOT VOID YOUR WARRANTY simply for using compatible or remanufactured cartridges.
There is no reason that you should not use compatible or remanufactured cartridges. They work and will save you money.
We've sold hundreds of thousands of inkjet and laser toner cartridges during our 10 years of trading and have never had an incident where a customer's warranty was "voided" from using our products.
According to Hewlett-Packard, the use of a refilled print cartridge does not affect the warranty unless failure or damage is attributable to it. This is typical of all manufacturers' warranties. Keep in mind that the ink does not touch any part of the printer or internal parts other than the cartridge and print head. The ink is applied to the paper as the paper is fed through the printer.
Why should I buy compatible or remanufactured cartridges?
Why not? The main reason is because it saves you lots of money! Also as a remanufactured cartridge has been recycled it reduces the amount of waste going to landfill. Thirdly if you by a remanufactured cartridge from us, you can be sure of the quality as it will have been recycled by us and will have passed our strict quality tests.
What is a high capacity cartridge?
It may come as a surprise to find out that printer cartridge manufacturers don't always fill their cartridges to full capacity. In other words, you may be buying a new cartridge which in fact isn't completely filled with ink or toner! A high capacity cartridge is simply the version of the cartridge available which is fully filled.
If you are a frequent user of your printer and looking for a lower cost per page output, assuming there is a high capacity version of your cartridge available (we will list it if that's the case with the available products for your printer) you can certainly lower the cost of running your printer by using them as your first choice - sometimes by as much as 50%.
