The T1281 ink cartridge is available to buy either as an original ink cartridge or as a compatible ink cartridge. The official ink volume for the original cartridge for Epson is 5.9ml of black ink. The compatible T1281 ink cartridge, however, has 13ml of black ink, that’s over 100% extra ink! How is this possible? Well, the original ink cartridges are not filled to capacity whereas the compatible T1281 is filled to the top and straight away is better value by miles.
