Do you mean which ink pads stay "wet" the longest?

I think by most accounts I have heard, the Versafine oil based pigment ink lasts a very long time without reinking.

But there are reinkers for most kinds of ink pads. How often to reink depends on use and probably storage conditions.

Not sure if that answers your question or not.

I have found that storing the ink pads so that the ink stays on the top of the pad works the best, This may mean storing the pads upside down. Other things also come into play, ie how long you have had the pad, how often they are used and whether or not the lid has been left off or open for an extended period of time. For most ink pads there are reinkers available so that you can keep the pad moist.

Hope this helps
