What the **** does "chipped" mean? I'll bet if you dropped it on the floor it would chip. Please post a comment explaining what it is you're trying to do.

First, not all printer manufactures are using ink cartridges that monitor ink usage. You may not need to "chip" your ink cartridges.

I generally caution people looking to use 3rd party ink.

Many printer heads clog when using 3rd party inks.

That said, my favorite 3rd party ink supplier is www.tylermartin.com

The "chip" that Epson printers use is actually in the ink cartridges themselves.
You either need a 3rd party ink cartridge with a chip that never runs out of ink, or a device to re-program the chip on the cartridge itself.
