As you may remember from a couple of months ago, one of my ink levels in the battery style chips reset when I removed the cart to give it a shake. I didn’t notice that it had reset, so it read full when it was only half full, causing my cart to run empty and introduced air into the lines.
This has led to a question that’s been looming for awhile for me.
Am I better off switching to the batteryless style chips? If so,
If I choose to refill all carts even if the empty ink notification hasn’t been triggered, I’m in no danger of running a cart dry because the notification will come on when the cart is partially empty. However, my ink levels will read lower than what’s actually in the cart, so the levels won’t be accurate.
Is this correct?
The reason I ask this question is that I’m considering getting a set of the battery-less chips so they don’t reset on me like they did before. I need to have a system that won’t mislead me into thinking my carts are full when, in fact, they’re almost empty.
