My method 10 seconds.. The dribble method a minute or longer, depending on ability..
Taken into account that when you refill the whole set, most carts are far from empty, and you have only to dribble a few ml's, it doesn't take that much more time. You'll be surprised how fast the ink is absorbed, in particular when you zigzag over the whole sponge (should help to disperse eventual pigment deposits, something I never saw in 6 years).

Everyone has his own little habits ;).

@stratman, your thinking this…
Put the bottle down. You're talking gibberish. Recall who said they used plugs, not dribbling, and direct your post accordingly.

Thanks for the link. I'm perfectly happy with my Maxify. I asked that a link(s) be posted so OTHER forum members interested could learn the technique.


PS As I type this, the great MMA fighter Conor McGregor from Ireland is on tv for a charity that benefits first responders and military that have died while on duty. Good commercial. Way to go Conor!

Careful agreeing with someone who is wrong.

You said you use plugs and don't drip/dribble. The image you posted is not a plug but a clip augmented for refilling.

Is this clip what you use, and, are you able to refill in 9 seconds using it?

You're right. I was thinking clip and I wrote plug.
Nine seconds is a bit of a joke after @The Hat claimed that he does it in 10 seconds. I haven't measured the exact time but possibly it can be done even in five-six seconds. It depends on the amount of ink needed to fill the cartridge. Refilling the whole set when one of them is declared empty, some of the carts need only a 4-5 ml of ink, while others require 10-12 ml.

The mantra we oft repeat here is thus...

If it's stupid and it works... it ain't stupid
Personally we use a mixture of the clip or force-fill approach (using the Adapted PGI-9/72 clips) for new or completely empty cart fills... and the dribble method for topping up. Occasional dribble filling is handy as well because it helps identify when there's any problems with ink flow (ie: ink doesn't seep in very quickly) and helps keep the whole sponge/outlet moist rather than forcing everything through one small spot.

Your mileage may vary.
