    We are proud of our own-brand cartridges, so we’ve made trying them a no-brainer. If within three years of purchase you have any problem whatsoever, we’ll happily offer either a replacement or a refund.
    Returning items is easy—it takes just a few minutes. But our return rate is very low, so you’ll be unlikely to need it.
    We are confident that no other own-brand cartridges are better than ours. They produce vibrant prints with accurate colour densities and dark blacks—and their page yields are as good as the genuines, if not better. Give them a try, and see why our customers love them.
    Our own-brand cartridges are incredibly reliable for three reasons:

  • as above DOES Your xl ink for 540/541 fit all printers

    can cannon XL fit into a printer that have had the original black &colour ink cardidges.IS the XL JUSTlarger??

    Thank you for your question. The Genuine High Capacity Black & Tri-Colour Canon PG-540XL / CL-541XL Ink Cartridges are designed to fit certain models of Canon printers, not them all. You can see which models they are compatible with on the link provided. The XL cartridges are not physically bigger, they just contain more ink. https://www.cartridgesave.co.uk/PG540XL-CL541XL.html

    Answered by Natasha Warnock (Staff Member) - about 1 year ago
  • Do the Canon PG540 cartridges come with the printhead on them?

    Canon PG-540 ink and printhead

    Yes, this original Canon PG-540 black FINE cartridge uses Canon FINE technology which integrates the ink tank and printhead into one cartridge for easier replacement and faster printing speed.

    Answered by Samuel Grayson (Staff Member) - about 5 years ago
  • Hi , can I put two black cartridges in the copy machine or does one of them have to be colour? I don't need colour, just black.

    Canon PG-540 cartridge replacement

    Most, if not all, of the printers that use this genuine Canon PG-540 black ink cartridge will require you to install one black and one tri-colour cartridge for the machine to work, regardless of whether you're printing in black or colour. If you installed a secound PG-540 black cartridge in the colour slot this would result in an error as the printer wouldn't be able to read the chip on the cartridge correctly.

    Answered by John Phiri (Staff Member) - about 6 years ago
  • Please could you tell me the volume of ink in your PG540 compatible cartridge?

    Canon PG-540 black ink capacity

    This is a genuine Canon PG-540 black ink cartridge, we don't currently stock a compatible PG-540 ink cartridge. Canon don't specify an ml capacity for this cartridge. We can only advise that the genuine black Canon PG540 inkjet cartridge will print approximately 180 pages at 5% coverage.

    Answered by Tamara Sawyer (Staff Member) - about 7 years ago
  • Hello, I would like to know how many ml of ink the PG-540 cartridge contains? Thanks.

    Canon PG540 ink volume

    Canon don't specify the ml ink volume of the genuine Canon PG-540 cartridge. The capacity is expressed as a page yield and you should expect to print approximately 180 pages based on 5% coverage from this genuine Canon PG-540 black ink cartridge.
