We know that one printer cartridges have different capacities ranging from 1000 pages to over 10,000 pages. This is related to the quality and size of toner cartridges. In general, we usually print A4 paper with 5% density. It means that each A4 paper prints 5% coverage content and how many prints can be made. Therefore, the larger the number of printable sheets, the more the cartridges can be used for a longer period of time.
In addition, the photoconductor drum decides on the life of the cartridges to some extent while difference in the material affect photoconductor drum. Because of that, cartridges can be sorted by different photoconductor drums: OPC cartridges, Se cartridges, and Ceramic cartridges. Their service life are respectively 3000 pages, 10,000 pages, and 100,000 pages.
