The Vaporesso GEN S is one of the newest addition from a popular manufacturer in the vaping industry, Vaporesso. The GEN S mod is a dual 18650 battery mod that is rated for 220 watts. The GEN S is designed to be sleek and lightweight, and considering Vaporesso has a history of making great mods, the GEN S might just be the best vape mod starter kit that you have ever tried.
Design and Build Quality
The Vaporesso Gen S is a sturdy and well-built mod. It is rectangular with soft edges that adds an ergonomic feel. The device measures 145.5mm x 53mm x 30mm with the tank installed, and it weighs 107grams. As far as colors go, there are twelve intense color options that you can get the GEN S.
The GEN S features a front-facing 0.95-inch rectangular black and white LCD screen just like in the original GEN device, although it is much clearer and easy to read. There is a gold plated 501 connection at the top of the device. It is centred so you should not have any issues with any atomizer. The 510 connection can accommodate up to a 26mm tank without any overhang. This is pretty impressive for a small vape mod like the GEN S.
At the bottom of the GEN S is a battery door that opens to reveal the battery compartment. The batteries fit comfortably inside. There is a ribbon inside the battery tray that helps you to take them out easily. The door is a standard magnetic side-plate style. The magnets are strong so when closed, the battery door does not shake.
About The NRG S Tank
The NRG S tank comes with a 5ml (straight glass) and an 8ml (bubble glass). The tank comes with a standard 510 black Delrin drip tip. The threading on the tank is nice and smooth. The tank uses a convenient top-fill mechanism. You simply slide the top cap in the direction marked by an arrow, this will expose a large fill hole that you can use to fill in your ejuice.
There are two airflow slots on the tank, and they are fully adjustable. There is also an airflow control ring that you use to adjust the airflow. It is smooth, easy to adjust, and on a stopper so that you can close it completely if you need to.
The kit comes with a GT Meshed coil and a GT4 Meshed Coil. The NRG S tank is compatible with the coils of the other tanks in the NRG line, as well as SMOK Baby Beast Coils. The coils screw into the base of the tank and are easy to remove and replace. You simply remove the base of the tank and unscrew them. You should note that the tank must be empty before you can do this.
The 0.18 ohms GT Meshed Coil is rated between 50 to 85 watts and is best around 60 watts. The flavor production is great especially if the airflow is turned halfway down. On the other hand, the 0.15 ohms GT4 Meshed Coil is rated between 50 to 75 watts but it performs better around 65 watts. The flavor output from this coil is slightly better.
Using The Vaporesso GEN S
It is a button-activated device that features an extensive menu. Just like in the GEN, there is a dedicated menu button that is in between the plus and minus buttons. The menu system is pretty simple to navigate.
- Five clicks of the fire button turn the GEN S on and off
- Three clicks of the menu button activate the menu
- The Up and Down buttons are to scroll the menu, the mode button is to accept
- One-click of the fire button exits the menu
- Three clicks of the fire button lock the adjustment buttons
The GEN S is loaded with features and modes that every enthusiastic vaper would find interesting, just like most Vaporesso mods. There is Pulse Mode, Power Eco, Smart TC, and DIY Mode. In DIY Mode, you can choose any of the standard modes: soft, normal, and hard), Temp Control (SS, Ni200, Ti, and one TCR memory slot), Voltage Mode, Watt Curve Mode, Bypass Mode, and Super Player Mode.

While this mod is practically the same as the GEN, Vaporesso still did a pretty good job with its design and power delivery. It is an excellent mod that is well worth the price unless you already have the GEN. The tank is great, and thanks to the cross-compatibility, you can use any other compatible coils, other than the ones that come with the kit. This is especially if you already have a favorite sub-ohm tank. You can get the Vaporesso GEN S Kit for just $90.20 on the vaporesso online store, https://vaporesso.com.
