There are a ton of reasons why the auto-resetters are here to stay many of them for battery manufacturing reasons (why the switch), others for technical reasons around how to get the new printers to code a reset into the chips in order to use refill carts at all.
Battery reset chips are not being manufactured any longer. If/when we are able to start manufacturing battery chips, everyone here will be the first beneficiaries. The newer printers disable the ability to have battery-manual or battery-less manual resettable chips as well . . . For now, get backups and keep them topped (aka, print till reset, pull the cart and top off and keep the full chip as backup). Better yet, if you have a few extra dollars, get a set of empty carts + piezoflush (one should do this anyway because if they are going to have to flush a channel, they need that cartridge, and then they will have the chips).
