Printer cartridges with a built-in print head are called integrated printer cartridges.
How an Integrated Ink Cartridge Works
Although the integrated ink cartridge looks like a small ink box, the integrated ink-jet cartridge is a high-tech component of the dual ink-jet printer. It has integrated microelectronic circuits that can transmit signals to the ink nozzle. Each ink drop is powered by a super heated vapor explosion, typically between 300 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit, each at 1-2 millionths of a second. The ink drop is rapidly expelled out of the chamber nozzle at a firing velocity of up to 20 meters per second.
During a typical printing job, up to 100,000 ink drops are fired per second from the nozzle plate and onto the page.
Advantages and Disadvantage of the integrated ink cartridges
The advantage of integrated ink cartridge is that printing is more durable and stable. Since the print head in the printer has life as well as the ink cartridge, and the print head in the printer will also be damaged by day to day printing. Therefore, you will find that the print quality will gradually decline over time. But the integrated cartridge uses a built-in print head, and the print effect remains unchanged.
The disadvantage of integrated ink cartridge is that it is expensive. Also, when replacing the ink cartridge, the print head must be replaced at the same time, which is easy to cause waste and not green.

HP 61 series, HP 62 series, HP 63 series, HP 64 series, HP 65 series and HP 67 series
Special integrated ink cartridge – v4ink inksacs
V4ink inksacs also belongs to the integrated ink cartridge, because its print head is also built-in the ink cartridge, but its print head and ink cartridge can be separated into two parts, which is the biggest difference from the traditional integrated ink cartridge.
V4ink focuses on the difference between the life of the print head and that of the ink cartridge. A print head can be used with the replacement ink cartridge up to three times. So v4ink made this innovative product to maximize the use effect of the print head.

Difference between traditional ink cartridges and the innovative integrated ink cartridges?
Both the original and the third party will produce the integrated ink cartridge. The original integrated ink cartridge is generally brand new, while the third party integrated ink cartridge is generally remanufactured. Their prices are often quite different. The innovative integrated ink cartridge is only sold by professional third-party manufacturers, such as v4ink, LD products, etc.
The following is a comparison of the cost per page of the HP 65XL Ink integrated cartridge:
|65XL Black||OEM||Remanufactured||v4ink InkSacs|
|Page Yield||480 pages||480 pages||1440 pages|
|Cost per Page||8.3 cents||5.4 cents||3.1 cents|
Utilization rate difference
The traditional integrated ink cartridge is disposable. Once the ink in the ink cartridge is used up, it needs to be discarded and cannot be reused. There are some third-party manufacturers recycle and refilled the ink to the empty cartridge so that it can be used again, which is what we call remanufactured ink cartridge. V4ink inksacsa is also a kinds remanufactured ink cartridge, but it separates the print head from the ink cartridge on the original basis, so that the print head can be reused. It can be used with the new ink cartridge for three times, which is more durable and environmentally friendly than the traditional integrated ink cartridge.
For printers with integrated ink cartridges, this means that you need to buy an ink cartridge with a built-in print head, which may be a little bit expensive because you need to buy a new print head every time you buy an ink cartridge. But it doesn’t matter. V4ink has come up with a way for you to save money. V4ink InkSacs allows the print head to be reused, which can save you more money and be more environment-friendly.
