Refillable ink cartridges enable easy refilling of Brother printers/cartridges. No special tools required, no drilling holes, no air locks after refilling (if you follow refill instructions). Refillable Brother cartridges feature sponge-less design. Ink level monitoring is not affected with these cartridges, it is the same as with original (Brother) cartridges.
Brother printers don't use ink level chips - so there is no need for any chip resetting device (eg chip resetter) either.
Some features of Brother refill friendly cartridges...
All long and some short type cartridges can be refilled in position (in printer)
Higher capacity than original Brother cartridges (up to 5 times more ink)
Easy to fill using a syringe and blunt needle - no special tools required
Fill hole and plug already in place - no drilling necessary
Many recent Brother refillable cartridges are now available in either short, or long style. It may not be that obvious from above pics, but the long style cartridges are more than 2x the length - of the short cartridges. This means the (long) cartridges hold more ink but also that the cartridge "door" will not close (with long cartridges installed) and they hang out the front of the printer. This in turn means that the door switch has to be jammed in "closed" position, or in some cases the door itself has to be removed - for the printer to work. More info on this is included with (long) refillable cartridges. The method for jamming the switch varies from model to model, but it is easy to do. Short refillable cartridges are the same shape & size as original Brother cartridges, so the door will close ok and you don't have to do anything else.
Note: You get to select either long or shortrefillable Brother cartridges (in product description) for each cartridge model.

Refill friendly Brother cartridges are simple to fill, easy to deal with and reliable. They fit well, are virtually trouble free and can be refilled again and again. Air locks can be a problem with any Brother printer, but if you follow the refilling instructions and use good quality ink, you should be right.
Tip: Due to the design of most late model Brother print-heads, any air introduced into the ink system can cause ink flow issues that can be almost impossible to rectify. Take extra care not to run out of ink and and don't remove the ink cartridges - unless necessary. Any time Brother ink cartridge is removed, air can get in and cause problems.
Buy Brother refillable cartridges in SETS (cartridges + tools) or for best value in DEALS (cartridges + tools + ink).
