Page Yield Up To 4000 Pages

This Compatible Extra High Capacity Epson 78XXL Black Ink Cartridge is quoted as doing up to 4000 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?

The compatible Epson 78XXL black cartridge can produce up to 4,000 black prints before it needs replacing. This makes it ideal for anyone who does large print runs or prints in high volumes.

The compatible 78XXL cartridge will fit in your printer and work exactly the same as the original! You can even use it along with any other compatible or original ink, no problem at all!

The 78XXL ink cartridge's are easily replaced when they run out! Open the front cover of the printer and push backwards on the cartridge you wish to remove, until you hear it click. It will then slide out of the printer. Remove any packaging from the new cartridge and push the new one into its space until you hear it click in. You can then shut the printers cover and away you go.

The 78XXL black cartridge is packaged in its own box so don't worry 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 compatible Epson 78XXL black cartridges are tried and tested, so we know they're top quality. Everything is covered by our 12-month quality assured guarantee anyway though!

Don't forget our delivery is fast & free and your compatible 78XXL black ink is covered by our 12-month guarantee.

My Epson printer used this compatible refill for a dozen copies and then did not recognise it. The same thing happened with the Yellow. Won't be ordering these again.

Good afternoon Billy,
So sorry to hear there have been recognition issues. We will email over some troubleshooting advice which may resolve the issue. If not we can arrange replacements or a refund for you.
I hope you have a nice day.
Kind Regards,

Great quality, great price, fast dispatch. Print quality matches the original WF5620 carts at a fraction of the cost. They install instantly with no problems so far.

A quality product from a company that has never failed to deliver over 15 years of buying from them.
This cartridge is another example of that excellence, with no installation or recognition issues, a good price & perfect performance in my Epson WF-5110 printer.

Bought as a spare so I haven't installed it as yet but I've no doubt it will be as good as usual. I've used these compatibles for some time now in my Epson WF5620 and have had no problems with them, the quality is just as good as the genuine ones. The printer itself, well that's another story...

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 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 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.
