I can't really say which one is better, it all depends on how you enjoy the feel of your strings.
From my experience, I've found BG80 Power to be softer than BG80. BG80 Power is more durable and I've found that I can smash harder with it as well.
Overall I prefer BG80 Power but some still prefer BG80. All in your preference =)

how long does your bg80p last and on which tension?

I play it at 27-28lbs... tension holds well up to just over a month.. after that, I contemplate cutting them. With BG80, I'm used to seeing it break in the middle before the month is over.

so you cut bg80p after a month, but bg80 break before 1 month?

Sometimes I cut them but not too often. I just notice a tension drop... otherwise I keep them because strings cost money and I don't grow money on trees .
This is just for my style of play; I'm sure someone else has a different experience with these two strings.

I would agree with the comments above - 80 breaks too easily - 80P goes dead after 3 weeks.

Agree with above posts.
I prefer 80P to 80 but just like the 66UM, it loses its freshness and has to be cut after 4-6 wks. ZM62 retains its freshness better and can go for 2-3 months before cutting. I'm currently rediscovering NBG98 but like the 80P, has to be cut after 4-6 wks.

For BG80P, I usually string it at my normal tension... with BG80, I string it a pound less than normal. So 27lbs vs 26lbs respectively.
