Page Yield Up To 550 Pages

This Compatible High Capacity Epson 502XL 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.

Why choose this ink?

This is a brand new ink manufactured by a third party company as a quality replacement for the genuine Epson version. It is fully chipped and just drops into your Epson printer and works straight away. The printer will recognise it as a compatible Epson 502XL ink, just hit continue and you're free to enjoy amazing prints at a fantastic low price.

The ink is as close a match to genuine Epson 502XL black ink as possible, meaning you can mix and match the compatibles with genuine inks already in your printer without issue. It also means you can print the same things you always do, whether it is work documents or photo prints, the compatible 502XL black Epson ink will do the trick!

Hey Guys,
I was sceptical at first as I've always used original cartridges, but I had over 500 sheets to print and had to budget my spend. Cartridge instructions straight forward and easy to gently install.
My Epson printer was being temperamental at first warning me of a foreign body inside!...
You have to try it to experience the pleasantly surprising result.
It was behaving odd as soon as I introduced the compatible cartridge, which took a little time to process. Eventually after many on screen clicks, off it went...Found the first copy slightly dull, but once a few sheets were printed, it went double sided full throttle and continued to print a good 240 sheets in Black
& White per cartridge. Way more than the Epson cartridge, so that was a bonus.
Clearly impressed with the quality and amount of pages it completed... the Epson, as posh as it may be... fell to the submission of a less than £10 cartridge.
Ordered 4 on Friday, came the next day on Saturday ...so well done dispatcher and Royal Mail.
Will Definitely be ordering more soon and HIGHLY Recommend. Read reviews and go for it!
Thanks to the team at Stinky Ink !!

Question not answered?

Ask a question

Will this cartridge work in my Epson 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 Epson 502 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 Epson 502 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 an XL cartridge still fit in my printer?

If you choose a high-capacity (XL) version of this cartridge it will still fit in your printer. The size of the cartridge is the same, but they are just filled up more to provide you with extra prints, often at a substantially lower cost per page printed.

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.
