Page Yield Up To 500 Pages

This High Capacity Epson 26 XL Black Ink Cartridge is quoted as doing up to 500 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 high capacity cartridge contains double the ink of the smaller version, giving you 12.2ml of ink and an increased yield of up to 500 pages.

Designed for higher volume users, this Epson 26 XL black ink cartridge provides the same high print quality and easy installation, it simply contains more ink to give you lower running costs.

As simple as three clicks and a 'send' and a genuinely cheap Epson cartridge appeared in my postbox two days later. Great service with no complications.

My order from Stinkyink was handled quickly and despatched within 24hrs.
I chose this company because the price was competitive, particularly as they had a special offer on at the time.
The ink I ordered for my Epson Expression Premium XP620 was delivered by Royal Mail within the time frame quoted by the company and just as well because the old black ink had recently run out.
Installing the ink was simplicity itself and the printer recognised the cartridge first time, which is not always the case as a new cartridge may need to be reseated a few times before this printer will recognise it.
I have always found the print quality for both text and photographs excellent on the XP620 which I bought about 18 months ago after seeing it was the recommended Best Buy by the "Which?" magazine.
After problems with other Epson printers using "compatible" inks I have tended to stick to the manufacturers brand and hang the extra cost. Whether my problems in the past have been anything to do with different inks I can't be too sure, but, yes, I would recommend this machine to anyone, although it has now probably been superceded by much newer models.

I always buy the Epson cartridges, and have usually been happy, but this time it seems to have not printed as many pages as expected.

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 Polar Bear Original 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 Polar Bear Original 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.

Why are original cartridges so expensive?

There are a number of factors that affect the price of original (OEM) ink cartridges. This cartridge is made by Epson themselves so they have ultimate control over the cost Stinkyink pay to stock them. Recent increases in the costs of raw materials and shipping for example have put more pressure prices. However, at Stinkyink we work constantly to keep prices low and offer a price-match guarantee on all original ink products.

Of course, in most cases you have the option save money with a Stinkyink compatible ink, which come with a 12-month money back guarantee. See the product comparison table further up this page for your options.
