Product Description

This kit is now compatible with all firmware versions.


This OctoInkjet Bag CIS (Continous Ink Supply) system is one that we've spent some years working on and we're pleased to have a system that now provides a simple, minimal mess solution for OfficeJet Pro-X owners.

Most, if not all competing CIS systems for the HP Office Pro-X series require the end-user to modify their existing cartridges and potentially get rather messy with bulk bottles of ink. The OctoInkjet system does away with this by providing the following solution:

  • Pre-modified OEM cartridges, ready to prime and install
  • Ink supplied in quick connect/disconnect bags so there's absolutely NO need to pour ink from one container to another
  • Simple setup packaging that doubles as the ink bag holder and keeps everything tidy


System benefits

  • No need to carry out any drilling, cutting or other modifications to your existing cartridges (So you get to keep them in reserve)
  • No need to pour ink anywhere, just connect the bag and you're ready
  • Ink bags are not vented so there's no exposure to air, this in turn extends the life expectancy of the ink
  • Auto-open/close valves on both; the ink bags and the tubing connectors, making changeovers almost entirely mess free


Cost Savings

It goes without saying that there are serious savings available from a CIS system when compared to the HP Original/OEM cartridges but we also offer a saving over compatible ink cartridges, particularly when it's time to purchase new supplies of ink.

Environmental Benefits

The system also has a significant environmental benefit through the materials used:

  • Significantly less plastic waste compared to compatible cartridges or indeed other CIS systems
  • We recycle used original cartridges, not new mouldings
  • Ink bags recycling is encouraged through our bag credit system
  • Where possible, low-cost recyclable materials, such as cardboard, are used in place of plastics
    (eg: cardboard shipping packaging doubles as the ink holder/tray)


Product Specification

This OctoInkjet BagCIS kit includes the following:

  • 4x 500ml bags of ink (Black, Cyan, Yellow, Magenta)
  • Each bag comprises:
    • A very strong plastic material that can absorb considerable pressure/abuse
