Following up on the success of the Target PM80, Vaporesso is about to release the new smaller version, the Target PM30, which you can pre-order. This is a lot like the original PM80, but as you would guess, it’s much smaller and has a maximum output of 30 watts.
- 30 watts max
- Replaceable coils
- Size: 117.1mm x 22m x 26.7mm
- Colors: Marble patterns: red, green, black, silver, blue, and purple
- Price: $29.90
The Target PM30 has the new style that pod mods have, which is sort of like a pod device, but boxy like a mod device. But the PM30 slims it down about as small as you could make a pod mod. The size makes the PM30 very compact and easy to carry around.
The designs all look great. You can pick from marble-styled patterns of red, green, black, silver, blue, and purple.
The power button is on the front with an LED light right beneath it and the USB-C charging port is on the back.
The Target PM30 has a max wattage of 30 watts and three wattages settings; high, medium, and low.
The wattage limitations clearly point to the purpose of this device. It’s designed for low wattage, high nicotine vaping as well as moderate temperature vaping for people looking for bigger hits.
The pod holds 3.5ml of e-liquid, but Vaporesso also sells a TPD-compliant pod that holds a max of 2ml. The pod uses a removable coil, which is great because it reduces waste and keeps costs of replacement coils down, so I’m a big fan of that.
The coils are press-fitted, so all you need to do is plug it in and let it soak before you vape.
To fill the pod, you slide the top to the side and then push the e-liquid tip into the push valve to fill it up. That valve is great for preventing leakage, but it also makes it impossible to empty, so there are pros and cons to this type of fill port.
The Target PM30 uses Vaporesso’s new GTX coil, which is compatible in all of the Target PM devices. The PM30 has three wattage settings and each one gives you a pre-set wattage based on the coil you use.
GTX 0.6-ohm Mesh Coil
- 25 watts, 22 watts, and 20 watts
GTX 1.2-ohm Regular Coil
- 12 watts, 10 watts, and 8 watts
GTX 0.8-ohm Mesh Coil
- 12-20 watts
- This coil does not come in the kit, so you’ll need to buy it separately.
One thing I’ve learned from the PM80 and from other pod devices on the market, 25 watts can go a long way. You can probably get some pretty big hits on this at low wattages. I don’t know this for sure, since I haven’t used one yet, but I would guess that the 0.6-ohm coil will be really satisfying to vapers looking for bigger more flavorful hits, while also having the option to switch to low wattage hits with the other pod.
The coils cost about $17 for a pack of five.
The PM30 has an internal 1200 mAh battery, which is a huge battery for such a small device. It’ll last you a long time.
Vaporesso also uses a USB-C charging port on here and I’m really happy to see that they’ve moved on from the micro-USB they used on the original Target PM80.
The USB port is also in a good spot because you can charge it while letting stay upright.
If this performs anything like the Target PM80, it’s going to be great. The PM80 has been one of my favorite pod devices yet. The flavor is great and it vapes awesome. I’m really looking forward to this one.
