|Q. Does recharging/remanufacturing
my toner or drum cartridge really save me money?
A. In most cases it will save you a significant amount of
money. Let's look at a popular toner cartridge we recharge:
the HP LaserJet 4+ toner cartridge. This cartridge retails
for about $149.00. If we recharge this cartridge, we only

is effectively cut your printing costs in half and your cost
of ownership of the printer is significantly reduced.

A. In most cases, the drum units can be rebuilt and you can
save money here. For the toner cartridges in these machines,
