Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.

  • Ink refill kit for Hewlett Packard CH561WN and CH563WN (HP 61 & 61XL) black cartridges
  • Two 20 ml bottles of ink(for 2 refills)
  • A manual, a screw tool, injection needle x 2, a pair of plastic gloves are included.

LD inkjet cartridge refill kits allow you to refill your existing empty ink cartridge. Why buy a new or remanufactured ink cartridge when you can refill the cartridge you have for much less money? Each kit includes the ink, tools and instructions to refill your empty inkjet cartridge and get printing again quickly. It is always a good idea to refill cartridges that have just ran out of ink. You also shouldn't try to keep printing on an empty cartridge as it will burn out of the printheads on your ink cartridge. All inkjet cartridge print quality will eventually fade but by keeping your cartridge full of ink and printing regularly you should be able to get a few cycles with one cartridge before buying a new or remanufactured ink cartridge.

  • Q:

    How does this unit work so that the HP 4630 printer will read the ink cartridge after you remove the sticker or does this matter? I want to buy your items and just do not under stand how it works and lets the printer print with black ink. Right now it says to replace the cartridge. Ray

      Thank you for your message. Because the cartridge has been through one cycle of service and has been refilled, it is common for the printer to read similar messages; however, resetting the printer itself should allow you to bypass the message:

      1. Take cartridge out of the printer and close the door/cover
      2. Turn the printer off and un-plug it from the wall for 30 seconds
      3. Gently wipe the gold connection points found on the side of the cartridge; you may use a soft, lint free cloth or cotton swab and alcohol
      4. Power the printer back on and allow it to fully warm up
      5. Re-install the cartridge and make sure it 'clicks' or 'snaps' into place

      Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any further questions or concerns; all products are backed with a one year warranty and we are more than happy to help! Thanks again. Be well and have a wonderful day. 888-321-2552 M-F 5am-7pm & Sat-Sun 4pm-7pm PST

For those who really want to save money on their printing costs this is the best way to go. It's not that hard to refill your own cartridges and this kit has everything needed to do the job. I gave the overall rating 4 stars due to the fact that part 3 of the instructions was a little confusing with the illustration shown and the wording below. It didn't say that you needed to unscrew the cap from the top of the syringe, so I had a little trouble figuring that part out before proceeding. After that everything else went smoothly, and I got my black HP 61 cartridge refilled without a problem. This refill kit RFK002B was almost identical to RFK001B, which was another one that I ordered to refill a different cartridge. The only thing that I could see different was the enclosed template sticker which you place on top of the cartridge. Otherwise, all of the other components looked the same, so I don't know why this one kit wouldn't have worked for both. Anyway, that being said, I still find this to be a quality kit and it should save you money in the long run if you do very much printing.

As careful as I was to make this a very neat process, the fourth time around, I still got ink on me and somewhere that I didn't want ink to spill. The quality of the ink on a scale of 1-5 would be 3-1/2, as it distributes to the paper differently than that of a manufactured cartridge. To provide some of the cons, it is somewhat messy and time consuming and an unfortunate spill of the ink can be quite damaging. For me I will stick to purchasing cartridges.

Didn't work for me but it may be my fault.

Comments about LD Refill Kit for HP 61 & 61XL Black Ink:

Unfortunately, this ink didn't fix my issue. I had a time following the instructions and when I finally got them filled, the last step of suctioning off .5 ml ink, extracted nothing. No black ink printed for either cartridge. Perhaps myself and the printer are just old and defective! At any rate, I will now order from 4inkjets a prefilled cartridge and test my theory. Rating this a 2 because it may be user error.
