Pump! Pump it up!

Pretty fun converter to use with its button on the back of the converter. I tend to put my ink in an ink vial or a different container since I don't want to put my pen my clean ink if I might need to press the button a couple times. However overall great capacity and fun to use.

Best converter. I use explorers and Kakuno's so I can use con-70cs

Huge, easy fill. Yay!

I have a few other converters that are barely bigger than a cartridge, or that are a struggle to actually get full and have to be refilled often because of it. This is my first converter with this kind of fill mechanism but I thought it was much easier and more effective than the piston converters I have. After sticking it in the inkwell and pressing the button 2-3 times there's hardly an air bubble left in the reservoir so I dont feel like i'm being cheated out of full capacity. I love being able to doodle and waste ink to my heart's content knowing it's so quick and clean to load it right back up. Recommended if you like to draw or just enjoy moving ink from pot to nib to paper.

Large capacity, Lasted me 2 weeks!

Paired this with my Pilot Kakuno (F) and works wonderfully. I've been syringe filling it so I don't really know if ink still gets into the button mechanism but overall, it holds up a good amount of ink! I've been using this on my Kakuno (F) for my planners and journals and one full fill lasted me 2 weeks before having to fill up again. I don't have any problems with cleaning so far. I use a bulb syringe to get most of the ink out and a dull syringe if I need to get into tougher spots.

Difficult to Use

I watched multiple YouTube videos to get this thing to work. It does not work well. I literally poured the ink into the CON-70. Anyway, it does the job.

FAQs about Converters
