The Lexmark 36XL is a black ink computer cartridge used in several Lexmark printer models. It is often paired with the Lexmark 37, a colour ink cartridge, to supply the full spectrum of colour to the printer. If you want to avoid buying a replacement cartridge, you can instead purchase replacement ink and reuse the empty Lexmark 36. Once the cartridge is refilled it will produce printing results comparable to a brand-new Lexmark 36.
