GEN S Review by Vaporesso Review
The GEN S is more like a special edition vape mod. It is just the same in the shape and build design as the original GEN, but it sports a couple of handy improvements, like a complete makeover for the original GEN. The GEN S still features the advanced AXON chipset, an innovate chipset that breaks the boundary for entry-level vaping with its user-friendly operating system. It is no doubt one of the fastest firing devices on the market.

Design and Build Quality
The GEN S mod measuring 145.5mm x 53mm x 30mm. Together with the batteries and a full tank, the mod weighs 275g. It is an average-sized mod considering it is carrying dual batteries. The body of the device is made with fire resistance polycarbonate, 4 times premium quality metal spray that is wear-proof, and a breathing rubber coating on the outside that is fingerprint free. The alloy chassis of the GEN S is well-engineered to be sturdy and lightweight all at the same time. The textures and rubberised coating feels great in your hand, and it is pretty easy to grip.
On the front face of the device is a convenient and easy-to-use fire button, an OLED display screen that is much brighter and clearer than the one on the original GEN device, three adjustment buttons, and a micro USB port for charging the batteries. The buttons protrude slightly, just enough for you to feel them, they also add to the simplistic and minimalist feel that Vaporesso was probably aiming at. The OLED display is simple and functional, although it may be a problem using it outdoors. The micro USB port sports a 2.5A fast charging that charges the dual 18650 external batteries in 60 minutes.
At the center of the top of the mod is a gold plated 510 connection that fits the NRG-S tank as well as any other tank. It can even accommodate tanks up to 26mm diameter without overhang. At the bottom of the mod is the magnetic battery door that fits perfectly when closed without any wiggling. The battery compartment has a ribbon that helps when you want to remove the batteries.
The menu is packed full of different modes that should satisfy both novice and experienced vapers alike. The three small buttons on the mod help to navigate the menu. The top and bottom buttons are the “+” and “-”, while the center button is the confirmation button. The device comes with an array of modes including:
- Pulse Mode: This mode delivers 27% extra flavor and cloud satisfaction
- Power ECO: One of its speciality is its longer battery endurance
- Smart TC: This delivers accurate temperature control
- DIY: This setting allows you to vape with the manual GEN-S setting
Other than these, there are also Variable Wattage, Custom Curve of Wattage, Bypass, Super Player Mode, System Set, and Smart Variable Wattage.
NRG-S Tank Review
Together with the NRG-S tanks is an 8ml bubble glass that allows you to carry a chunk of ejuice so you do not have to bother about constantly refilling. The tank comes with a plain 510 Delrin drip tip that fits nicely on the mod with a neatly cut threading.
The NRG-S tank direction indicated by an arrow on there. This would reveal a large fill port that can accommodate eve your large-tip ejuice bottles so you can refill without spilling your ejuice.
The coils are easy to replace. You simply unscrew the base of the tank and unscrew the coil. Note that you cannot replace the coil when the tank is full, you can only remove or replace the coil when the tank is empty.
The GEN S kit comes with two out of the nine GT coils from Vaporesso, the two of them are:
- 0.18ohm GT Mesh Coil
- 0.15ohm GT4 Mesh Coil
One thing both coils have in common is the airflow. They are all quite airy, but they can be restricted to a slightly restricted lung hit by cutting the airflow control down. They both do not have any wicking issues which is probably due to the large wicking ports on the outside of the coils.
The 0.18ohm GT Mesh Coil comes preinstalled in the NRG-S tank and is the airiest. The coil is quite flavorful for a single mesh coil. It is best between 50watts to 85watts.increasing the wattage increases the warmth of the vapor as well as the flavor. In the end, the 0.18ohm GT Mesh Coil is a flavorful, warm, and cloudy coil.
The 0.15ohm GT4 Mesh Coil is even better at flavor production. The coil feels great at 70 watts, but it is rated between 50 watts to 75 watts. The cloud production is just about the same, so as the warmness of the vape.
In the end, the GEN S is one of the best vape devices that every vaper needs to get their hands on, especially if you do not already use the original GEN. It is lightweight, powerful, and available in a variety of alluring colors. It’s cross-compatibility also means that you would be able to use a variety of tanks with the mod, meaning that you have an endless selection of vaping choices.
