What is Toner Refill?
Refill is English and means refilling or, more precisely, refilling (the prefix “re” corresponds to the German “wieder”). However, the shorter term “nachfüll” for “refill” has become established in German. In relation to toner, refill means a process of using toner cartridges multiple times, i.e. refilling them.
Refillable colors were already available for older printer models that did not use laser technology. But only the dry toner used for laser printers, consisting of toner powder, enables a clean refill process, i.e. one in which ink is not splashed and can be easily refilled by any layperson. With modern refill toner, provided the refill process follows the instructions, the risk of contamination is significantly lower.
Refill is especially worthwhile for laser printers!
Refilling with refill toner makes sense for printers that are called laser printers or color lasers or color lasers. The refill process is recommended for laser printers simply because of the costs. New toner cartridges often cost comparable amounts to the laser printer itself. This is the case with Xerox color lasers, for example. Toner cartridges cost about 2/3 of the price of the printer. For Samsung, Epson and OKI laser printers, the cartridges can sometimes reach prices that are higher than those of the devices. However, these costs are unnecessary because Refill offers the opportunity to purchase inexpensive refill toners that eliminate the need for a new toner cartridge. There is also the option of simply filling in individual, missing colors. Refill is possible in stages and can be used as needed.

Refill toner individually or in a package?
Refill is a very flexible way to refill the laser printer. You can either purchase a whole set that contains all 4 basic colors of the CMYK spectrum, i.e. cyan, magenta, yellow and black, or each color individually. But even if you buy a whole set, that doesn't mean you have to refill all the colors immediately and at the same time. You can divide the refill process into multiple steps as needed.
