VAPORESSO TARGET 80: Features and First Impressions

Product intro and specs
The TARGET 80 is the latest kit from popular manufacturer VAPORESSO. They have been making devices at a quick pace this year, with releases like the XROS 2, XROS MINI, LUXE 80, GTX GO… and that’s just a few of them. The good thing is that even though they’ve been releasing one product after the other, they have managed to keep a high-quality standard across the board and most of their devices have been solid.

The TARGET 80 is the latest in the long line of TARGET products, which features both AIOs and box mods. This one is a full-fledged kit with an internal battery mod rated at 3000 mAh and most of the features and functions you’d expect from it.

It’s been a while since I reviewed a VAPORESSO product that’s not some kind of an AIO or pod mod. I’ve been using this kit for around a week, and here’s what I think of it so far.

TARGET 80 features

The TARGET 80 mod fires between 5-80 watts and adjusts in half-watt increments. It features a large bright color screen, an internal 3000 mAh battery, and 2A fast charging. There is a menu button that leads to a full menu with modes like Pulse, VW, and what they call FT mode. All modes are essentially power modes, so there is no temp control on this device. They also have variable voltage and Bypass mode as well, and an option to turn Smart mode on.

The featured tank is the GTX pod tank, which is also included in the LUXE 80 and GTX GO kits. In the TARGET kit, it comes with an adapter, so it can be used as a regular tank on any mod instead of being forced into an AIO device. It still uses the GTX series of coils which are proven to be good coils across the many devices they are used in and are easily available—so you shouldn’t have an issue finding coils in the future.

First impressions

I’ve used and reviewed many VAPORESSO devices including a few that use this line of coils, so I’m pretty familiar going into this already. The GTX 26 pod tank is nothing new but has proven to be a solid tank over the past few devices I’ve reviewed it on. The coils do restricted DL for the most part, and they are good at it. There are MTL coils available in the line, but the tank itself is not made for MTL.

As for the mod, I really like the look and design of it. The screen is great, the shape is nice and comfy, and the panels add some grip. The mod comes in five color options, all with a gunmetal frame with the difference between them being the color of the two panels. The “cage-like frame and triangular structure” design is supposed to make the mod more durable, but it isn’t a device rated for ruggedness—although it seems to be more durable than your average vape mod.

I really like this kit so far, but I’ll dive more into it in the following days. We’ll see if it stands up to my testing in the full review coming soon.
