I've never seen this nomenclature before: 2^80

Does this mean 2 to the 80th power?

Is there a better way to express it, such as eliminating the carat and
superscripting the 80?

The target audience is IT folks running data centers and other web geeks. I
don't think anyone can assume that each has a higher mathematics degree.
