Tips for using EcoTank style printers
·  Choose Ink of Well-Known Brand

The OEM ink and the compatible ink in printers will usually be mixed up when you refill a new ink for EcoTank style printers. If two inks are not well compatible, or the quality of the compatible ink is not good enough, printing problems such as print head clogging, poor text printing and even machine damage occur.
The compatibility and quality of the ink from well-known brands usually performs better. For instance, thanks to the superior ink formulations, G&G products with Gloria and Everbrite high-end inks available provide high-quality color with consistent reliability. Meanwhile, they perform outstanding compatibility with OEM inks.


·  Refill the Ink In Time

Do not wait until the ink tank is dry before refilling. Always watch for signs that the ink is running low. Otherwise you may run out of ink at an inopportune time, which affects your work efficiency. It can also cause some damage to your printer.
