The Innokin Coolfire Z80 Kit review as well as this one comes topped with the Zenith 2 storage tank. You have to go completely back to late 2013 to discover the history of the ‘Coolfire’ array by Innokin.
Way too many tools as well as kits to study to offer you a good understanding of how much the Coolfire array has actually come. If you’ve ever owned a Coolfire device, after that you’ll understand what I’m discussing
A lot more just recently– the Coolfire Z50 kit was launched which had an internal 2100mAh battery, included the Innokin Zlide tank, and fired up to 50 watts. Innokin is back with the Coolfire! This moment utilizing an exterior 18650 battery and firing approximately 80-watts and also the set features the lengthy-awaited Zenith II container.
What Can We Get Out Of the Innokin Coolfire Z80 Kit
The new Coolfire Z80 set is part of the System Collection by Innokin which in this instance has actually been created by Phil Busardo as well as the Vaping Greek. The Zenith 2 container might perhaps be compared to the Zlide tank for many resemblances.
But the Zenith 2 is specified as an RDL/MTL storage tank which necessarily means Innokin believes this tank can be utilized as a Mouth To Lung or Restricted Direct To Lung storage tank– depending upon which coil you make a decision to take advantage of.
The set features a 0.8 Ω Mesh coil, preferably for MTL, and additionally a 0.3 Ω Mesh Z-Coil preferably for more of a Direct-Lung vape, and has a 5.5 ml capacity.
The Coolfire Z80 device itself is a solitary 18650 tool and also can discharge to 80-watts. Innokin has additionally included its brand-new FØ innovation which I will enter into a bit later on in this testimonial– It’s a little bit technical however does it make a distinction?

Innokin Coolfire Z80 Colours.
I received the Ash Grey variant of the Innokin Coolfire Z80 package which comes with a matching ‘Gunmetal’ Zenith 2 Tank. If you choose the ‘Natural leather Black’ package, you obtain the Black Zenith 2 container, as well as with the ‘Natural Leather White’ Kit you receive the Silver Zenith 2 Tank.
Design and also Develop Top Quality.
The Ash Grey version of the Coolfire Z80 set is a nicely colored set when it pertains to contrasts. The body of the tool is a really dark, extremely polished Gunmetal coating which is enhanced by the Zenith 2 tank of the very same color with a light grey finish for the cushioned surround on the gadget.
The Zenith II Tank.
Leak Idea & a Top Cap:
The 510 Ultem drip tip that features the Zenith 2 kit isn’t exactly my favorite, but because of its size, the ability of being utilized for both RDL or MTL vaping, nevertheless for my individual choice I took advantage of the consisted Extra 510 drip-tip when using this tank as an MTL tank, purely because of its smaller bore and also more slender MTL design.
The top-cap doubles up as the fill area, a basic slide anti-clockwise will disclose the filling port which has that silicon seal suggesting it’s practically leak-proof if you occurred to drop the storage tank whilst filling.
Coils & Capacity:
The Coolfire Z80 kit features 2 different Z-Coils.
The 0.8 Ω Mesh as well as the 0.3 Ω Mesh coil, yet there are also a number of various other coils offered for the Zenith 2 storage tank.
The Zenith 2 container has a 5.5 ml capability however obviously for TPD regions, this will be limited to 2.0 ml– I’m unsure if it’ll be just one of those double-lined PCTG tubes or an interior removable silicone bung, but in any case, I make sure there will certainly be a method to prolong that capacity as much as the optimum 5.5 ml.
I truly like exactly how the glass is secured from the frame of the tank. Just like with the Zlide– Now this does not mean you can’t break it, yet it’s absolutely extra resilient than the majority of the storage tanks we see.
The detachable base of the Zenith 2 storage tank is perfectly laser etched with the Platform Series logo as well as the designers Phil Busardo and Vaping Greek. The base doubles up as the air movement control and has good tolerance to it.
Air movement can be changed from one huge Airflow port, completely down to the more MTL airflow which has 3 small openings. Meaning you can readjust the air movement from wide open, to as tiny as 1 little inlet opening.
Storage tank– Overall:
Generally, the Zenith 2 storage tank is well manufactured.
To start with, prior to you’ve filled up the storage tank for the very first time, a few of the threading, as well as tolerances, can feel somewhat on the rigid side, but after a few re-fills as well as alterations, the fill-port and also airflow slider become good and also smooth.
Innokin Coolfire Z80 the Mod:
The top of the device will hold anything as much as around 26.0 mm before you experience any type of overhang from your atomizer as well as there is a nice throw from the 510 pins itself.
Regardless of which container or dripper I set up, I’ve had no gap between the atomiser and also home plate.
The Front of the Device.
The front of the display has an actually nicely design fire button, protruding perfectly and also with that wonderful etched round effect, it really stands out thanks to the gold rim around the switch.
The fire button itself has a nice click to it, nevertheless– my button likewise has a not-nice crunch to it. It does not occur each time, just the very first time I press it, after that if I leave it a while and press once more, it’ll crisis once again.
I’ve contacted various other reviewers who have the exact same item as well as they report no such issues so I mean I’ve simply got a dodgy one?
Below the fire switch is an intense color display, I angle appear to find details on its size however it’s approx 21mm in elevation by 14mm in width. Below the screen are the up and down switches for changes to wattage, power, and also settings and they both click perfectly without any issues to report.
USB Type-C Port:
Right at the end of ‘The Face’ of the Coolfire Z80 tool is the USB-C port for billing as well as firmware upgrades.
There is no safety cover over the USB port and however, the gadget has a maximum 1.7 Amp charge price which I can verify, thanks to Innokin’s very own Innokin MVP5 tool being made use of as a power bank.
As always, considering this takes advantage of an external 18650 battery, I constantly suggest billing your batteries on an external charger in contrast to charging internally.
However, the alternative exists if you require it.
Innokin Coolfire Z80 the Battery Door.
I have actually stated a thousand times that I’m not the most significant fan of this design of battery door. That’s right, the screw in ‘flappy turn design– however they make for a tidy coating and the lift up tab makes it simple enough to remove as well as mount.
The threading for the battery cap behaves and smooth and I’ve had no issues with the battery door in all.
Around the back-side of the gadget is the design of product we’ve seen means a lot of times, yet this set is less like natural leather and also more like a foam-feeling material with a good quantity of padding.
I really quite like it however it’s not the best with moisture as water will simply take in, in contrast to running the product.
The Mod– Overall:
As a whole, the device is well constructed as well as to the expected Innokin common definition I believe the Coolfire Z80 will certainly be a reliable device. It’s simple essentially but also quite a wise-looking and feeling gadget.
Innokin Coolfire Z80 In the Hand.
Being a solitary 18650 tool, the Coolfire Z80 set really feels nice in the hand, especially as a thumb firer with your fingers wrapping around the padded section and your pinkie resting under the tool for support.
The cushioned product offers the device a good feeling in the hand and as a result of the dimension of the Z80 its not specifically heavy, however really feels solid as well as resilient.
Exactly how To Load The Storage tank.
- Turn the Zenith 2 top-cap Anti-clockwise into the ‘Unlock’ placement.
- Loaded with your desired e-liquid.
- Allow the e-liquid to fill the coil for at least 5 mins.
- Turn the Top-cap clockwise until it quits turning in the ‘Lock’ position.
The Innokin Coolfire Z80 kit includes two various coils which in my opinion are plainly developed for two various styles of vaping– so make note of what’s what as well as the power level they advise before mounting because when you fit the coils, it’s really challenging to see the info on the coils to determine what to establish your wattage at.
The Zenith 2 tank will take any one of the coils from the ‘Z-Coil’ array meaning the Zenith 2 container will fit a number of various vapers depending on your choice.
Both coils provided in the package are Kanthal mesh with the 0.3 Ω being the Restricted Direct Lung coil advised in between 30 and also 40 watts as well as the 0.8 Ω being the Mouth-To-Lung coil recommended between 15 and 18 watts.
How Does the Innokin Coolfire Z80 Set Perform?
Innokin is still using the very same style of menu and functions from previous gadgets, which to begin with may be a little complex, you do eventually masterpoints yet it can take a few shots to figure it out.
The front display reveals:
- Battery Capability (No Percentage).
- Power Mode.
- Power quantity.
- Coil Resistance.
- Puff Time.
- Smoke Count.
The 4 things at the bottom of the display are fairly small so for those that deal with small lettering, this may be an issue. Nonetheless, the message for these is fairly crisp as well as brilliant.
There are a reasonable few options to consider when it involves operating the Coolfire Z80 storage tank, so I’ll try and also damage it have as easily as feasible.
- 5 clicks of the fire switch will certainly turn the gadget on and off.
- 3 clicks of the fire switch will successfully put the device to sleep/Wake up.
- Press & hold Fire Switch and also Up– Shows battery voltage, coil resistance, and Smoke Count.
- Press & hold Fire button as well as down– Locks adjustment buttons but still fires.
- Press & Hold Up & down switches will open up the menu.
Scrolling with the menu with the Up & down modification buttons, there are a number of alternatives.
Let’s obtain the confusion out of the way. I’ll attempt and make this as simple as feasible, for my very own purpose as much as yours.
Usually talking, the majority of devices use DC (Straight Current) meaning there is a consistent current to the coil which does not increase or drop, it remains continuous.
With FØ mode– the tool makes use of Alternating Current indicating the current to the coil will effectively, pulse, or change up and down. How does this influence a coil and also the vape experience?
Well properly what this could mean, is that the rotating current can boost the vape experience as it enables existing to fluctuate more openly, meaning the power to your coil will not always be the same.
Exactly how does that make a difference? well depending upon your e-liquid as well as your wattage, some parts of the coil might take advantage of the rotating present, instead of the current constantly being the same.
Innokin think this will certainly profit the life of the coils because of the reality its not constantly being powered by the exact same present, however by a current that fluctuates.
Its a little bit like driving your auto at various speeds to enable it to cool down much better when driving sluggish, as well as heat up when driving quickly, in contrast to frequently driving quick.
I still seem like I’m not making sense.
The truth is– I’ve not truly discovered much difference if I’m truthful– I really feel a lot longer time-frame is really required to check this choice, whilst comparing it to a gadget with the FØ setting OFF.
This setup may additionally benefit battery life as you are not constantly requiring the full capability of the battery when shooting. Or perhaps it’ll require more as it needs to produce an extra waveform? I really do not understand.
Despite what Innokin state, I’m actually not convinced it makes a substantial difference if any kind of to the vape experience or coil life. Yet that’s simply my experience.
The Coolfire Z80 has the alternative to change between Power level as well as Voltage just.
This brilliant feature will fire your tool for 1 2nd at 40% of your set power level as a method of ‘Revitalizing’ your coil.
A little a gimmick if you ask me, because you might simply minimize your electrical power as well as press the fire switch for 1 second to rejuvenate it by hand. That’s if a coil in fact needs ‘rejuvenating’.
I put this down as a trick in the meantime.
In settings you can change the screen to a much more easy look with just your battery capability, electrical power and also puff time displayed, you can also alter the screen time out from 5 secs to 180 secs.
Cut off the power when shooting from 3 seconds to 18 secs along with displaying the Device Identification number as well as restoring the device to manufacturing facility setups.
Flavour & Clouds.
For the duration of my screening, I was vaping on Darkstar Code-Red for the RDL experience, a 80VG/20PG mix, and also for the MTL experience with the 0.8 Ω coil, I made use of an additional Darkstar product, Mango Unchained which is a 50VG 50PG Nic Salt.
The 0.3 Ω Z-Coil (30-40w).
With the larger of both drip ideas mounted, the airflow to the max, and the electrical power evaluated 35 watts I took pleasure in a chilled out, slightly limiting Luke-warm vape with adequate flavor to maintain me pleased.
At greater wattage, I found the 0.3 Ω coil wasn’t too comfy so I usually vaped at around 35-watts.
Going down the air movement down, it obtains a lot more restrictive and also personally I didn’t locate it comfortable or satisfying.
Directly I discovered this coil carried out finest with optimum airflow and average electrical power. The pleasant notes from the e-liquid appeared nicely as well as its a smooth, quiet vape without whistle or fizz feeling.
The 0.8 Ω Z-Coil (15-18w).
Setting the 0.8 Ω coil at 17-watts and also limiting the airflow to just 2 tiny airflow openings, I discovered I got the most effective experience for me.
The constraint has to do with the right for a comfy MTL draw, possibly as well limited for some however I delight in a tight MTL draw.
The flavor is more than decent. This is a surprise for me because directly I have actually never actually got on effectively with Innokin’s Zlide tank. So I have actually been impressed with just how this coil performs and the flavor it supplies.
Dropping the airflow down to just one opening, it’s still a good vape for me, however a lot more on the tighter side.
For enjoyable, I placed the airflow slider up to the maximum and to be truthful its method too much airflow for an MTL and most likely not nearly enough for a limiting Direct Lung– Right in that awkward placement.
Innokin Coolfire Z80 Air Flow.
The Zenith 2 storage tank has an extremely basic, however extremely practical airflow system that across the board is smooth as well as straight.
I’ve mainly appreciated utilizing the Zenith 2 tank as an MTL storage tank with the 0.8 Ω coil however it carries out well as a limiting direct lung vape with the 0.3 Ω coil.
Simply directly I tend not to vape Direct Lung with this much constraint. It’s not extremely limited, simply tighter as a DL than I favor.
Both coils provided are quite Reduced Power coils meaning despite having the 0.3 Ω Z-Coil mounted, I’ve still obtained great battery life out of a solitary 18650 at around 35-watts and also have actually had no problem lasting a whole day with a solitary battery.
As for the 0.8 Ω coil at 16-18 watts, I have actually appreciated over 2 days battery life no problem.
As constantly– These are based upon exactly how I vape, just how much I vape, and also my batteries, this may differ depending upon your configuration and demands.
Innokin Coolfire Z80 Toughness.
I would not state the Coolfire Z80 set is one of the most long-lasting, durable bulletproof kit on the market by a long odds.
However, that’s not to say its developed high quality isn’t approximately scratch across the board the Z80 set is constructed to a high standard and also an extremely great finish, so I believe this kit will do you proud and last rather well.
- Wonderful design & finish.
- Well constructed.
- Clear display.
- Suitable charge price.
The product border isn’t water-resistant.
Feel the Frequency & revitalize choices are just over-engineering.
A battery cap may be a disadvantage to some.
Some details on display are extremely tiny in Pro mode.
The Top-fill opening is a dirt-trap.
The leading fill port is fairly small.
What could be improved?
- Make the product cover water-resistant.
- Overhaul the menu systems.
- Make the gadget a 21700 may be a far better alternative for some.
- I’m still uncertain if the Frequency Mode and rejuvenate really do anything that noticeable.
- Modification of the top cap to something that will much better safeguard the fill-port from dirt access.
Innokin Coolfire Z80 Final Evaluation Verdict.
Allows admit it, Innokin is respectable at making top quality products for the masses, as well as their System Series is no exemption. Seeing as this gadget can provide for a range of various vapers definitely makes it appealing.
For me it’s not the best everything, however, it’s definitely qualified enough, and also considering its construct top quality, I see this Coolfire Z80 kit as a worthwhile successor to Coolfire’s of the past.

Would certainly this tool be long long-term as well as still function 3, 6, or perhaps a year from currently?
