Everyone wants to save money, and a toner refill is one way printer owners can do just that. With refills, you can reuse old ink cartridges instead of buying new ones, a method that many users prefer to replacing used cartridges, both for the money savings but also because it is more environmentally friendly.


There are many methods of refilling toner cartridges, but DIY toner refill kits are one of the best and most convenient options, and one that anyone can do at home. These kits often include the toner material and reset chips: to refill, open the empty cartridge, add more toner inside, and reseal the entire thing. Depending on the manufacturer, some cartridges may require soldering or drilling; also, cartridges cannot be reused indefinitely, as parts wear out and eventually require the purchase of new cartridges.
