Page Yield Up To 550 Pages

This Compatible Brother LC223 Black Ink Cartridge is quoted as doing up to 550 pages before needing to be replaced.

The page yield is calculated by manufacturers using ISO/IEC 24711 standards, where they print set documents of 5% page coverage until the cartridge is empty. The standard means you can compare yields between cartridges and manufacturers.

Compatible Ink To Replace The Genuine Brother LC223 Black

These Compatible Brother LC223 Black Ink Cartridges are brand new cartridges made by a third party company as a money saving alternative to using the genuine Brother ink. They're fantastic inks that give you:

  • the same easy installation
  • print quality as good as the original Brother inks
  • a 12 month money back guarantee

This compatible black is manufactured to strict quality guidelines and standards, guaranteeing you get the best print quality in your Brother printer at a fraction of the cost.

Why choose this ink?

Compatible means this cartridge is new but made by a third party manufacturer, rather than Brother. We still give it the same 12-month quality assured guarnatee though.

The LC223 black cartridge can print just as many pages as the original which is up to 550 pages of sharp and crisp black prints.

The cartridge is sealed in a bag to protect it so if you're not ready to use it straight away you can store it for up to 6 months without its quality or performance being affected.

The cartridge installs into the printer as quickly and easily as the original Brother cartridge. To begin, remove any packaging from the new cartridge and open the small cover on the front of the printer. The old cartridge can then be removed by pushing down on the clip at the top and then pulling it towards you. The new cartridge should be slid into the slot and then pushed backward until you hear click into place.

The cartridge still has the same 12-month quality assured guarantee, and it has been tried and tested to make sure its every bit as good as the original.

Order your compatible LC223 black ink cartridge today and enjoy free, fast delivery.

Good print from a cheap compatible cartridge and seems to last well, ideal for my use with occasional handouts teaching a small group.

I had a problem with three black compatibles and was relieved to finally get an ink cartridge that worked - so it gets my thumbs up for reliability!

FAQs

Question not answered?

Ask a question

Will this cartridge work in my Brother printer?

Use our 'Check this ink fits your printer' box at the top of this page to confirm this cartridge is suitable for your printer model. In most cases the model number is written on the front of your printer.

Note: These cartridges will only work in printers purchased in the UK and Europe. Printers purchased outside of these zones will have different coding and electronics.

How much ink is in a Brother LC223 Compatible cartridge?

We don't advise on the number of millilitres, as not every cartridge prints using the same droplet size, so two cartridges for two different printers may both have 5ml of ink, but one will print more than the other. Instead, more accurately, the industry standard is based on printing 5% of an A4 page.

How many pages will this Brother LC223 Compatible cartridge print?

This is known as page yield. The number of pages you'll be able to print depends on the cartridge you purchase and the kind of printing you do. The page yields shown higher up the page are based on printing 5% of the area on an A4 page.

Learn more about how many pages you'll be able to print with this cartridge in this article.

Will this compatible ink cartridge work with my printer?

Providing you haven't had a recent firmware update (see question below), you shouldn't have a problem. The chips on our cartridges are updated regularly to avoid firmware interference, but in the unlikely event your printer did reject the cartridges, you are covered by our 12-month guarantee.

What are firmware updates?

Firmware updates are updates put through your printer by the printer manufacturers (e.g. HP, Epson, Canon etc.). The update can contain code that stops any third-party cartridges from working, so that you can only use original brand cartridges. In most cases you cannot undo this update, but you can switch updates off to prevent it.

Do the cartridges display ink levels?

Yes, these cartridges are designed to work no differently from originals, so all the same functions should be available.

The cartridges look different to the originals or ones I have had before, will they fit my printer?

Third-party cartridges must be designed to differ slightly from the originals, to fit in with legal copyright requirements. However, the cartridges are still made to fit in your printer and are tested rigorously to ensure compatibility with your printer. We use a small number of trusted suppliers and while the look of the cartridges can vary slightly from each one, they will fit your printer.
