Together with the new Maxify office printer series, Canon launched the Canon PGI-1500 and Canon PGI-2500 cartridges with a completely new design in the second half of 2014. Optimised for use in small offices and businesses, all cartridges contain pigmented inks. High light fastness and long durability are the consequences. Last but not least, it is the higher printing speed of Maxify printers that makes these inkjet printers an alternative to laser printers.
At the time of writing, the following printers are using the 1500 ink cartridges:
Maxify MB 2350, Maxify MB 2050, Maxify MB 2000 Series, Maxify MB 2300 Series
More will be added in the coming months.
The ink cartridges Canon PGI-1500 are available with the following page ranges:
- Black PGI-1500 XLBK, 9182 B 001 with 34,7 ml ink for approx. 1.200 pages

Both cartridge types are relatively easy to refill. The link to the instructions can be found further down on this page. Since the printer cartridges are also equipped with a chip for monitoring the ink level, we are currently conducting a long-term study on the effect of chips on multiple refilled cartridges. So far it looks as if you can simply ignore the message caused by the chip and still continue printing. We will soon see if this still works after several refills. Whether with or without Chipresetter - we will show you how to continue printing with refilled original cartridges.
