If you are looking to contribute to saving the planet and reduce landfill, there are no refill products currently available to replace the genuine Epson Strawberry ink cartridges. A mystery surrounds why after more than a year, auto resetting chips are still not available? Only compatible one-use chips have so far been developed for the latest Epson Expression Home XP models. If and when a chip resetter becomes available we will post ink refilling instructions.
What many owners of the above models are doing is storing their printers until the refillable or CISS products become available. Particularly those who bought them for use with different types of ink. However, if you are considering doing this, be careful. Leaving a printer to stand for several months with ink inside can cause a print head blockage. Don't be tempted to remove the cartridges before putting the printer back into the box. Ink inside the print head nozzles may dry up if left open and exposed.
What is the best model Epson printer to buy for refilling the cartridges? Epson Workforce printers using either 16 series or 27 series cartridges can be successfully refilled, but you will need a chip resetter, however, we recommend buying special refillable cartridges with ARC chips. With the exception of the WF-2750WF printer which is problematic with reset chips, most other models will work well with this type of set-up. A good printer to buy is the WF-2510WF which uses T1631-4 refillable cartridges. Refillable cartridges work very well with this machine. Epson Workforce WF-2510WF printer review.
