Inkjet Cartridges XS


It is nothing new that original manufactures sell inkjet cartridges in different refill sizes.

It is nothing new that original manufactures sell inkjet cartridges in different refill sizes. What's new is that some of the manufacturers are selling XS versions in addition to the "small" inkjet cartridges. It always seems possible to make something smaller. Unfortunately, these cartridges cannot be refilled with very much ink. Therefore, these cartridges have no or a very low return deposit value since most customers are not willing to buy a refilled cartridge with a capacity of less than 100 pages. Below, we explain how you can identify these XS cartridges:
