GEN S Mod by Vaporesso Review
Make way for one of the latest kits from popular vape manufacturer Vaporesso. The Chinese manufacturer has quietly been one of the top mod makers in vaping with an incredible history of manufacturing some great mods, like the Target Mini 2, Luxe, Polar, Armour Pro, and the original GEN. The one question will be whether or not the GEN S will live up to the Vaporesso name.

They also equipped it with the new NRG-S sub-ohm tank that has a generous 8ml ejuice capacity and uses meshed technology to improve the interaction between the ejuice in the tank and the cotton for even richer vaping experiences.

Build and Design
The GEN S is mostly a rectangular mod just like the original GEN. It measures 90mm x 53mm x 30mm and weighs about 107g without the NRG-S tank installed so it is not a hassle to carry around. The GEN S sports a semi-rubberized coating that feels soft in the hand. It also features dimpled and curved side panels that make the device comfortable to hold.
On the front face are the fire button, a crisp and bright OLED screen, three adjustment buttons, and a micro USB button that can charge the batteries in about 60 minutes. At the top is a gold plated 510 connection that is centered and can accommodate tanks up to 26mm in diameter without overhang.
The battery door is held in place by magnets so they do not shake while you use the device. There is also a ribbon inside the battery tray that makes it easy to remove the batteries.
Using The Vaporesso GEN S
Just like the original GEN, the GEN S comes with a dedicated mode button that is in between the plus and minus adjustment buttons. Thanks to the AXON chipset, getting through the settings of the GEN S should be a breeze, ad even if you get stuck or lost, you can just single press the fire button to take you back to the beginning. Here is a quick rundown:
- Five clicks of the fire button turn the device on and off.
- Three clicks of the menu button activate the menu
- The plus and minus buttons help you to scroll the menu
- One-click on the fire buttons exits the menu
- Three clicks of the fire button lock the adjustment buttons and your settings in place.
NRG-S Sub-Ohm Tank
The NRG S sub-ohm Tank sports the same color profile as the rest of the mod. There is also knurling on the top cap and base that help with your grip. The tank comes with an 8ml bubble glass and a 5ml straight glass which is just enough ejuice so you do not have to worry about constantly refilling.
At the top of the tank is a standard wide bore 510 Delrin drip tip that is securely attached to the top cap. When you need to fill the ejuice tank, you simply twist and turn the top cap to reveal a large silicone-lined fill port. At the base of the tank are two airflow holes that can be controlled using an airflow control ring.
The tank comes with the GT Meshed coil and the GT4 Meshed coil. It is also compatible with the entire Vaporesso GT coil series and also coils in the SMOK Baby Beast coil lineup. The coils screw into the base of the tank and thread into the chimney.
How The Coils Perform
The GT Meshed coil is a 0.18ohm coil that is rated at 50 to 80 watts but best around 60 watts. The GT4 Meshed coil is s 0.15ohm coil that is rated at 50 to 75 watts but is best at 65 watts. One thing both coils have in common would be airflow. The GT Meshed coil is airy but when the airflow is narrowed halfway down, the flavor it produces is pretty decent with warm vapor. The GT4 Meshed coil is even more flavorful than the GT Meshed coil.
