Hey vapemallow Squad!
Today, I’m excited to share my experience with the Forz TX80 kit from Vaporesso. They’ve been making waves in the vaping world with devices like the Luxe and Gen, and now they’ve released a rugged, water-resistant mod that uses their Axon 2.0 chip. Let’s dive into this kit and see if it’s worthy of your attention.

When unboxing the Forz TX80 kit, it’s clear Vaporesso was aiming to create a competitor for the Aegis Solo. It’s a rugged, water-resistant, single-18650 mod with all the features of the Axon chipset. What caught my eye was the tank, which has a protective coating made of fiberglass, plastic, and soft rubber. This means even if you drop your mod frequently, the tank and glass are well protected.
Build Quality and Design
The Forz TX80 is lightweight, compact, and well-built. It has a lot in common with the Geekvape Aegis line, including water resistance and a rugged design. The mod feels solid in hand without being too heavy. The fire button, adjustment buttons, and menu button are all conveniently placed, and the 0.69-inch screen is clear and bright.
The 510 pin works flawlessly with any atomizer, and the included 25mm tank sits flush with the sides and front of the mod. I received the Steel Blue and Leather Brown editions, and the overall appearance is clean and simple, with just the right amount of branding.
The battery compartment has a threaded cap similar to the Aegis Solo, making it easy to swap batteries. There’s no button rattle on this mod, and the build quality is excellent.
Features and Functions
The Forz TX80 is packed with modes and features, such as Pulse Mode, Power Eco, Smart TC, and DIY Mode, which includes Power, Temp Control, Voltage Mode, Bypass Mode, Super Player Mode, and their new “F(t)” mode. The DIY mode menu has everything you need, but some of the other modes may not be as useful.
Using the Forz TX80
Navigating the menu is simple and straightforward:
- Five clicks of the fire button to turn on and off
- Three clicks of mode to enter the menu
- Use up and down to scroll the menu and mode to accept
- Use fire to exit menu
- Three clicks of fire to lock adjustment buttons (can still fire)
- TCR and power adjustments are made after selecting the mode
Forz 25 Tank Rundown
The Forz 25 tank uses new GTR coils that come in two options:
- GTR 0.15-ohm mesh coil (rated 60-80 watts)
- GTR 0.4-ohm mesh coil (rated 40-60 watts)
I found that these new GTR coils offer better performance than some of Vaporesso’s previous coils. The 0.15-ohm GTR mesh coil performs best around 70 watts, providing great flavor and impressive coil life. However, vaping at 70 watts may drain your battery faster. The 0.4-ohm GTR mesh coil works best at around 50 watts, delivering good flavor and coil life while preserving battery life and consuming less e-juice.
The tank comes with a straight glass (4.5 mL standard, 2 mL TPD) and a replacement glass, but the protective coating around the glass makes it highly durable and resistant to breakage. The rugged tank design is a definite plus.
The coil system is a standard plug-and-play type, similar to the Crown 3. Removing the coils can be a bit tricky, but the included screwdriver helps with popping them out and inserting them. To replace the coils, simply unscrew the base and pop them out from the tank. Note that the tank should be nearly empty when replacing coils.
The only complaint about the tank is the threading on the base, which can be a bit crunchy. However, this issue might be exclusive to early samples and is not a major concern.
To disassemble the tank, unscrew the top cap and use the tool to unscrew the lock nut. This is only necessary when replacing the glass, which is unlikely to be needed. The tank features a standard wide bore 810 O-ring fitted black Delrin drip tip with a textured surface and a metal ring at the bottom for aesthetics. The top cap screw-off fill method is a bit old school but works well, with two large fill holes compatible with any bottle type. The airflow control ring is smooth and easy to adjust, featuring a stopper and knurling for grip and appearance.
Overall, Vaporesso did a fantastic job with the Forz TX80 kit. It’s an excellent starter kit for sub ohm vaping, offering a small, rugged design, high performance, and a durable tank. With only minor cons, this kit is an outstanding choice for anyone in the market for a new vaping setup and stands as a strong competitor to the Aegis line of mods.
So, vapemallow Squad, the Forz TX80 is definitely worth considering if you’re looking for a reliable and durable vape kit!
