How do they measure ink cartridge volume?
Sep 8, 2010

How is the volume of an ink cartridge determined? I have OEM and replacement Canon cartridges. Both have a volume of 9 ml, but the ink reservoir of the aftermarket cartridges is much larger than the OEM. Contrary, The OEM has a much larger sponge area. That could indicate that the actual volume of 9 ml is determined by adding up volumes of the sponge and reservoir? Or is the cartridge of arbitrary volume and do they just fill it with 9 ml of ink?
