Apex New Replacement Chips for HP143A Cartridges rtmworldChina-based Apex Microelectronics (Apex) has released a first-to-market replacement chip solution for the HP W1143A series of cartridges

“In March 2020, HP launched the Neverstop Laser 1000 and its MFP 1200 printer cousin in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada,” an Apex spokesperson told RT Media. “These printers come with a do-it-yourself refill kit, that theoretically keeps the printer going without stopping.”

According to Apex, the new chip release allows aftermarket suppliers to refill these toner bottles with the Apex chip fitted allowing consumers to have an alternative choice of supplies.

“Our chips provide consistent performance and are easy to install in the recycled cartridges,” the spokesperson added.

About the Printers

Apex New Replacement Chips for HP143A Cartridges rtmworldThe Neverstop 1000 laser printer is a print-only version while the MFP 1200 series is a multifunction printer (which allows for scanning and photocopying as well).

The Neverstop bulk-toner or cartridge-free toner technology is an attempt to replicate what Epson did with its EcoTank inkjet technology. HP has got rid of the toner cartridge and slashed the per-page cost of consumables. This means consumers do not have to swap out big, bulky and expensive cartridges each time the printer runs out of toner. According to HP, the Neverstop has a refillable bin inside the machine that can be filled from the replacement kit that holds approximately 2,500 prints, a process that takes just a few seconds. As long as you don’t allow that last 2,500 pages to run out, the printer never runs out of toner.

The refill kit costs only a fraction of the average 2,500-page toner cartridge, making stocking a few of them a much less costly proposition. The aftermarket will be able to use compatible toners and chips (from Apex) to provide a competitively priced product available.

According to PC reviewer William Harrel, the procedure is: “Shake the reload kit container, open the hatch on the printer, turn the center portion of the reload container 180 degrees (which in turn opens a second hatch door and makes an airtight seal), and then press swiftly and forcefully down on the top piece or plunger to force the contents down into the onboard reservoir. It really is a swift and foolproof procedure, with little to no chance of clouds of black dust billowing out of the hatch. It’s an ingenious way to transfer so menacing a substance from one container to another without making a mess, and it saves HP the expense of having to manufacture resource-heavy cartridges containing their own costly and inefficient sets of sensors and other electronics.”
