The Wismec R80 is an all-in-one vape measuring 116.2 X 32 X 31.5 mm. It runs on a single 18650 battery that helps the device to generate 80w of power. The status of the vape can be seen by looking at a 0.96 inch TFT screen that is easy to read.

The R80 pod is capable of holding four milliliters of nicotine e-liquid. It is refillable and uses replaceable 0.3-ohm mesh and 0.8-ohm Ni-Cr coils. A 510 adaptor can be installed so that users can use their own tanks.

Wismec R80 Review: Its Inventory and Features

The R80 is an AIO device from Wismec. At first glance, it looks like a pod mod, but it is a vape that utilizes tanks with replaceable coils. This helps to enhance the vaping experience by giving the vape more versatility than what one would get from a regular pod mod. It is small and ergonomically designed.

Wismec R80 Review

The best way to describe it would be to say that it resembles a coffee thermos. This aspect of its design and appearance makes it easy to stow away in a backpack or purse. The body is gleaming, and there are five color options from which to choose: Classic Legend, Meteor Shower, Northern Lights, Ocean Star, and Quantum World.

This vape is quite powerful, generating up to 80w of adjustable output. The amount of wattage can be easily adjusted in one-watt increments by interacting with the 0.96 inch TFT screen, which is easy to read thanks to its bright and colorful display. Shown on the screen are the wattage level, a puff counter, and the battery life. The vaper has the option to choose the color of the lettering on the screen and lock the wattage.

The coils are one of the reasons why this vape produces excellent vapor and flavor. The pod utilizes replaceable 0.3-ohm mesh and 0.8-ohm Ni-Cr coils. Both coils use highly absorbent and organic cotton. The bottom of each coil has an adjustable airflow dial. Rotate the bottom to control the amount of air flowing through the coil. The R80 pod can hold up to 4 ml of nicotine e-liquid. Customers have the option of buying a 510 adapter from Wismec, which will enable them to use different tanks if they choose to do so.

The Wismec R80 Starter Kit

The starter kit comes with everything needed to start vaping. The package includes:

  • R80 pod
  • Two coils (WV-M 0.3ohm mesh coil and WV01 0.8ohm coil), one of which comes pre-installed
  • A USB type C cable
  • User manual

The version two kit comes with a 510 adapter.

Internal Building Quality and Design of the Wismec R80

The design and build quality of this device is acceptable, promoting efficient functionality and practicality. There is no rattling, it feels solid, and it is comfortable to hold.

Additionally, there are no leaks in the pod. The mouthpiece is round, and it could be a little bit narrower, but it does its job, and it is comfortable.

The Wismec R80 Battery

This vape uses single 18650 batteries. The battery is housed in a small port at the base of the mod with a cover that screws on and off. The cover has a small handle to make taking the cap on and off easier. Battery life is superb, and it should last just under a day to one or two days, depending on the coil being used.

The Wismec r80 Pods and Coils

The R80 pods hold up to 4 ml of nicotine e-juice, which allows for plenty of vaping time before having to refill. A plastic cover protects the rounded mouthpiece, and it slides off effortlessly.

Refilling is easy, too. There is a door at the bottom that covers the refilling port. The port is wide enough so that it can be refilled without causing a mess. Three magnets hold the pod to the rest of the vape, and the whole set up holds together well.

The coils used in the pod are 0.3-ohm mesh and 0.8-ohm Ni-Cr coils. The mesh coils are rated for 25 to 40 watts, while theNi-Cr coils are for vaping at 12 to 20 watts.

VD Wismec R80 Coils

At the bottom of each coil is an airflow control ring that rotates to open or restrict the airflow. The pod has to be taken off the vape to control the airflow. Usually, doing this would be inconvenient, but the pod comes off easily, so adjusting the airflow can be done quickly.

How Long Do the Coils Last?

The coils last one to a couple of weeks if they are primed correctly and used at the recommended wattage. To get the most life out of the coils, vape them between 25 to 40 or 12 to 20 watts.

How to Use the Wismec R80?

Using this vape is incredibly easy. Use the handle of the battery door to access the battery bay, insert a single 18650 inside, and then screw the cover back in. Before adding the coils, place some e-liquid onto the wicking, put one into the pod, and then fill it. Adjust the airflow, as previously indicated. There is a window on the pod that enables the user to check his or her e-juice levels.

Using the firing button, regulatory buttons, and the display screen is also simple. Press the left or right regulatory buttons to adjust the wattage. Holding both of these buttons down locks and unlocks the wattage. Pressing the firing button three times will change the color of the screen.

Vaping Experience with the Wismec R80

There is nothing to complain about when taking drags off of this vape. The vapor coming through these coils is fantastic. The 0.3-ohm coil provides an intense vaping experience with dense clouds and high amounts of flavor because it can tolerate higher wattages. The 0.8-ohm coil offers excellent taste, as well. An added advantage to using the 0.8-ohm coil is that it extends the battery life immensely.

Wismec R80 Competing Products

Wismec R80 vs. VooPoo Vinci

The VooPoo Vinci is a 40-watt pod mod kit that has a massive 1,500 mAh internal battery. It also has a flat, duck-billed mouthpiece, and the pods hold 5.5 ml of e-liquid, which is substantially more than Wismec’s R80 AiO kit.

The battery can last up to a full day. One of the problems with the VooPoo Vinci, though, is that it has issues with e-juice leaking onto the battery connection.

Wismec R80 vs. Smok RPM 40 Mod Kit

The Smok RPM is a 40-watt pod mod kit that uses 0.4 and 0.6-ohm coils. This mod works with salt and freebase nicotine e-juices, and it is powered by a 1,500 mAh battery that can last for an entire day.

VD Smok RPM40 Screen

While this pod mod is one of the more impressive products out there, it is expensive compared to other pod mods, and it is a little overdesigned.

I was a smoker for over 25 years. In this time I also earned my medical degree with a specialization in addiction treatment and counseling. That period has led me to vaping, my interest started around 2011. I’m fighting the tide of hysteria and dis-information around vaping that emanates from various fronts legislative, cultural and scientific. Having scientific councils support, I’m happy to contribute my thoughts, articles, and expertise.

    I read a review where someone said his pod leaks a lot of juice especially since the fill port is at the bottom of the coil. Can you verify this?

      Hey Telan, Thanks for sharing. Well while testing I haven’t noticed the leaking nor from the bottom, nor from the mouthpiece. Probably while replacing atomizer or filling it might be a bit juicy (especially with a full pod). I just wipe drops after closing the silicon filling door. Indeed R80’s pod is made with tight connections. So even if some drops occur it might be a good idea to check them.
