Smok m80 Plus

So I just received my smok m80 plus . It’s running the latest v006 update which fixed what …I don’t know . My initial thoughts on it weren’t good because when I opened the box there was a screw out of the bottom plate just lying on top with the mod …as if someone was playing with the batteries .
I’ve been fiddling around with it for a while here with the temp control and mech mode and wattage mode . The temp control seems to work . It basically just scales back wattage incrementally untill it’s almost nothing, but it works . I can’t get a dry hit out of this thing with my Goblin on top and a .29 ohm dual micro coil . Other modes work as they should as well .
One thing I’m not fussy on is that some of my tanks aren’t sitting quite flush . Not a big deal really.
The quality isn’t bad but I don’t feel like it’s a mod you want to be dropping very much . There is some button rattle but they work fine . The colour that was supposed to be gold is more like a peach which hopefully I can fix with some sort of wrap . It doesn’t quite feel as nice in the hand as my istick but sits comfortably .
Overall I have to say this isn’t a bad little mod for the price when you consider dollar to watt ratio . It’s got some features I probably never will use like time and date which if you don’t know the time and date your probably vaping something other than e-juice!
I’d have to give it a
8/10 Performance
7/10 Quality
9/10 Value

Would I recommend it probably but I think for the average vaper 80 watts isn’t a need but for the price of less than an I stick50 your not losing on the deal .



Looking good @MixedUp1; Thanks for the good review. I’ve almost pulled the trigger on an M80 a couple of times, particularly since I’m seeing them at under $50 now. My finger is still kinda twitchy to buy a VW mod at the moment. Sooooo many choices and things yet to come!

It’s hard to beat feature-wise for that kind money!


I think it’s worth it …don’t get the peach one tho !!

Meh, wraps are pretty cheap and you only have a bazillion from which to choose!

My buddy got one of these recently and it was pretty nice. I say was because he was dry burning a new 22g coil install and the thing wouldn’t turn off. It got so hot he had to throw it in the sand and let it burn out. It was a literal hot mess afterwards. Luckily the vape store took it back and exchanged it for a new one. They wouldn’t replace the Dark Horse that was attached to it though. It must have been a bad unit because he hasn’t had any issues with the replacement.

He must have gotten a mod that was built on a Monday or Friday.


That’s the one I ordered. I knew I shoulda got the black. :unamused: It’ll be good for my tanks tho.

What type of wire are you using.

28g kanthal


If only it had a spring loaded 510…

No spring on the m80???

I also have a M80. I really like it but the other day I dropped it about 1 foot with the charger plugged in and now it won’t charge. I opened it up and the soldering it lose. I’m not good with a soldering gun so I will prob just get something different witch sucks cuz I do like it.

The 510 is spring loaded

The trick is to melt the solder onto the tip of the iron first


Yhea just sketchy on doing it. It will still charge if I set it up a certain way but if I botch the soldering job I’m screwd

That issue could be fixed by just a touch of a soldering iron. “Cold solder joints” are super easy to fix. A little bit of TLC and you’d be back in business.


I got my M80 in today. I kinda like the color on it. Its nice looking to me.

My current situation. :sunglasses:


How do you go about finding which version you have?
