Consider the audience, not tech writers who haven't coded. It doesnât take years of college math to know that a caret is the usual symbol to denote an exponent. And that in code there is no concept of a superscript. If the audience is IT people, I think it safe to assume that they won't even pause at 2^80.

I vote for 2^80.
