What is an ink refill kit?

Category: Office Supplies


Ink Refill KitAn ink refill kit is a do-it-yourself ink refilling method that is specifically designed for refilling and extending the life of recently emptied printer cartridges. They are created by third party suppliers to replace the ink in the major printer brands such as HP, Lexmark, Kodak, Canon, Epson, and many others. Most ink cartridges can be refilled 3-10 times before disposal and are considered an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to buying new OEM ink cartridges. The kits will often come with tools like syringes that can be used to either inject ink back into the cartridge or remove air. Once the ink is injected and the printheads are cleaned, the cartridge can be reinstalled and used again as normal.
