I contacted the refill supplier about this and they couldn't have been
more apologetic, refunding my cash immediately.

I spoke to their engineer about the problem and he said that this was

I was impressed with their honesty and swift readiness to compensate

another refill kit (in addition to refunding my payment).

Disappointing technically but rewarding in a business sense.

I never had any luck with the Drill and fill ups either, seems that there's a chip with-in that ruins it all. i now get supplies from, they happen to have the new ISO-9001 certified cartridges which are cheaper and way better when it comes to quality.
