ASPIRE BP80 KIT : Review
Since the release of the Aspire Breeze AIO kit back in 2017, Aspire has really made a name for themselves in the world of vaping. Now with the recent release of the Aspire BP80 kit, Aspire continues to exceed expectations and affirm their reputation as industry leaders in quality and innovation. Designed as an upgraded version of its predecessor the Aspire BP80 kit offers more battery power, and an upgraded design similar to another leading device the Voopoo Drag S Kit.
The Aspire BP80 Kit comes with two coils, a 0.17 ohm and a 0.6 ohm, and is compatible with all Aspire BP replacement coils. The adjustable airflow on the Aspire BP80 is open on both sides creating the smoothest possible air path, and the sliding cover makes it easy to adjust to your personal vaping preferences. Fully open, the Aspire BP80 is capable of producing some impressive clouds for a device of its size. Personally, I tend to prefer a tighter draw so I’m happy to report that while fully closed the Aspire BP80 device also provides enough restriction for a tighter MTL hit. The flavour on both settings is excellent, although there is a bit more flavour with the MTL option, it’s not a big enough difference to inhibit the experience of those who prefer a DTL vaping. One more important thing to note about the vaping experience of the Aspire BP80 is that there’s virtually no spit-back. In more than a week of consistent usage, it hasn’t popped, leaked or spit at all.

As the name suggests, the Aspire BP80 has a max power output of 80 watts, 20 watts 411more than the Drag S. The Aspire BP80 device uses a single 2500mAh internal battery and has a type-C port for faster charging. Although, I don’t think you’ll need to use it very often as the battery life of the Aspire BP80 is impressive. The Aspire BP80 also features a colour TFT screen where you can see information like wattage and remaining battery life. The colour display of the screen is customizable as well, which is a cool feature that’s missing from devices like the Drag S. The Aspire BP80 has two usage modes to choose from. The first is an “auto” mode where your device will detect the coil resistance and adjust the wattage accordingly. The second is the manual mode that lets you choose the wattage best suited to your preferences. Screen and usage settings can be adjusted using the two small buttons on the side of the device. Another unique feature of the Aspire BP80 is its bottom fill pods. I’m typically sceptical of bottom and side fill pods because leaking issues are common with them, however, the Aspire BP80 continues to impress with their innovation and problem-solving. I don’t know how they did it but so far, not a single leak with this device.
Hardware Rating: 8/10
Overall the Aspire BP80 is an impressive and innovative device. Its design is sleek but sturdy, making it an ideal daily device to take with you on the go, and the long battery life makes it even easier to do so. The biggest con for the Aspire BP80 is the size and placement of the ‘up’ and ‘down’ buttons. While they’re very appealing aesthetically, they’re also quite small and awkwardly placed, making them a challenge to navigate and posing some serious accessibility concerns for anyone with dexterity limitations, big fingers, or long nails. The screen may also be a concern for anyone who struggles to read small print. Aside from that, with so many options for customization, the Aspire BP80 is flexible enough to meet the needs of most vaping styles and is a good option for people who like to change things up every now and then without having to change devices. Very solid device from Aspire.
