What Does “Firmware-Safe” Mean on Printer Cartridges?

Recently, we launched a series of Firmware-Safe ink cartridges, including HP 62XL, 63XL, 64XL, 65XL, 67XL, 902XL, 910XL, 952XL, and 962XL. Many customers are not familiar with the concept of “Firmware Safe”. Therefore, in this blog, we will introduce in detail what Firmware Safe ink cartridges are and what advantages they have.

Firmware-Safe technology is an advanced technology that allows compatible ink and toner cartridges to be used with HP+ printers (-e modesl) and remain compatible and functional with HP printers even after the printer undergoes firmware updates.

Firmware-Safe ink cartridges

In the past, compatibility issues with HP+ printers and firmware upgrades were the main pain points for printer users. HP+ printers are designed to work with original HP cartridges. Any compatible cartridges will not be recognized by HP plus printers. Firmware updates are software updates provided by the printer manufacturer to improve functionality, security, and performance. However, these updates can sometimes cause non-original or third-party ink cartridges to become incompatible, leading to printing errors or the printer refusing to recognize the cartridge.

That’s why we invest a lot of time and money in new technologies. We are committed to using technology create better printing. With our Firmware-Safe technology, the cartridges will continue to work correctly and reliably, regardless of HP+ printers or any firmware changes, providing a seamless and uninterrupted printing experience.

The main difference between Firmware-Safe ink and ordinary compatible ink lies in their compatibility, relibility and functionality:

Firmware-Safe Ink vs Ordinary Compatible Ink
  • CompatibilityFirmware-Safe ink cartridges work perfectly with HP+ printers (-e models). They are great alternatives to the HP Instant Ink cartridges. Whereas ordinary compatible inks from other companies do not work with HP+ printers. They only work with printer models without an "e" suffix.
  • Relibility: Firmware-Safe ink cartridges are specifically engineered to withstand firmware updates from the printer manufacturer. They include technology that ensures they remain recognized and functional even after the printer's software is updated. This means users can confidently update their printer's firmware without worrying about losing compatibility with their ink cartridges. Whereas ordinary compatible inks may not include the same advanced technology that can become incompatible after a firmware update. Users with ordinary compatible ink might face the inconvenience of having to replace their cartridges more frequently or revert firmware updates to maintain compatibility.
  • Functionality: Firmware-Safe ink cartridges come with a ink level indicator and monitor ink levels accurately. So you can know the usage and remaining ink level at any time. Whereas ordinary compatible inks from other companies may not provide ink levels as they reuse OEM chips.

In summary, Firmware-Safe cartridges offer better printing experience and peace of mind compared to ordinary compatible ink cartridges, especially when working with HP+ printers or dealing with regular firmware updates from the printer manufacturer.
