Hi, I was thinking of getting an Inkjet cartridge off Amazon (new OEM). It seems my current cartridge is done. Now what I usually do is take it to Walgreens for a $10 refill and this cartridge has been filled about 2 or 3 times. There is a bit of damage on the corner of the copper circuit(?) strip but it doesn't affect the prints. I am concerned that it probably might not survive the refill. I might order from amazon but if the refilled one still works, I need to know how long a new OEM cartridge will last. 6 months to a year? By that time, the refilled one will be done.

BTW, the damage on the cartridge was there before the 2nd refill.

Thanks

There is a "shelf life" to those cartridges. Just buy as you need. How old is the cartridge from Amazon?

Well, I don't think I know how old those are. I doubt I can find out from the listing.
