Guide to Inkjet Cartridges

Inkjet Cartridge : What is it?

Inkjet Cartridges

Inkjet cartridges contain liquid ink and spray them onto paper from inkjet printers. They consist of one or more ink cartridges and a set of tiny nozzles, which eject ink in uniform droplets. A basic inkjet printer has one black and one colored ink cartridge. The black cartridge contains only one reservoir for the black ink, while the colored one has three reservoirs holding cyan, magenta, and yellow ink. Most ink cartridges can be refilled, although manufacturers usually recommend replacing the cartridge to prevent damage to the printer.
