GEN S 220W Kit by Vaporesso Review

The GEN S Mod is one of the latest kits from a popular manufacturer, Vaporesso. Over the years, Vaporesso has built a good history of making some of the best vape mods, some of which include the Target Mini 2, Luxe, Polar, Armour Pro, and the original Gen. The GEN S mod is a dual 18650 battery mod that is rated for 220 watts. It is designed to be sleek, lightweight, and powerful. It also comes with the all-new NRG-S tank that takes sub ohming to a new level.

Design and Build Quality 

Vaporesso’s GEN S is a solid and well-built box mod. It sports a rectangular shape with rounded edges that makes it comfortable when you hold it in your hand. It measures 90mm x 53mm x 30mm and weighs about 107g without the tank installed, and even with a full tank, it weighs just about 275g which means that it would not be too bulky to carry around.

The mod features a 0.95-inch OLED rectangular black and white screen that is much brighter and clearer than that on the original GEN. there is also the fire button, three adjustment buttons, and a micro USB port that can power the dual batteries in about 60 minutes. 

Below the mod is a battery door that features a standard magnetic side-plate style. The batteries are easy to install and remove thanks to the ribbon inside the battery tray. At the top of the mod is a gold plated 510 in that is centred there. The mod can accommodate a 26mm tank without any overhang.

Features

The GEN S is a powerhouse, packed full with features and modes just like most Vaporesso mods. You have Pulse Mode, Power Eco, Smart TC, and DIY Mode. In DIY mode you can choose the standard modes of Power (with normal, hard, and soft preheats), Temp Control (SS, Ni200, Ti, and one TCR memory slot), Voltage Mode, Watt Curve Mode, Bypass Mode, and Super Player Mode. There are also Smart and Auto modes in the settings menu.

Using the GEN S Mod by Vaporesso

The menu system of the GEN S is just the same as the  GEN. There is a dedicated menu button for confirmation that is in between the plus and minus adjustment buttons. The menu itself is simple and easy to navigate, but 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 Tank: Brief Rundown 

The NRG-S Tank comes with both a straight glass that can accommodate 5ml of ejuice and another bubble glass that can accommodate 8ml of ejuice. This has to be one of the best parts of the tank since you would not have to worry about constantly refilling. The tank comes with both the GT Meshed Coil and the GT4 Meshed Coil, although it is compatible with the entire GT coil line. It is also compatible with the SMOK Baby Beast Coil series. This cross-compatibility means that you have an array of vaping experiences to enjoy from just one mod.

The coils of the tank screw into the base. They are just as easy to remove as they are to replace. You simply remove the base and unscrew the coils. However, you would not be able to do this on a full tank, your ejuice tank would need to be empty.

The NRG-S Tank comes with a standard wide bore 510 black Delrin drip tip. It looks pretty plain, but it is a standard 510 and it fits snuggly. There is also the sliding top cap that you use to reveal the large fill hole for when you need to fill in your ejuice. The large hole makes it easy for you to use larger-size bottles without spilling your ejuice. 

Last but not the least on the NRG-S tank is the airflow control ring that is smooth and easy o adjust. It has knurling on it so it is easy to grip. There is also a stopper that allows you to close off the airflow completely. 

Performance

Let’s start with the GT Meshed Coil. It is a 0.18ohm coil that is rated between 50 to 80 watts. It is an airy coil but the flavor is still pretty decent with the air turned halfway down. It is best around 60 watts, but you may want to play around until you find your suit.

Now onto the GT4 Meshed Coil. This is a 0.15ohm coil that is rated between 50 to 75 watts. It is much more flavorful than the GT Meshed Coil. It is best around 65 watts, but you may want to tweak it around to find your suit.

Verdict

Vaporesso did a good job with the GEN S mod. If you do not already have the GEN, then you may want to consider getting this one. As far as mods go, the GEN S is a great mod with good coils, and since cross-compatibility will not be an issue, you can still bring in a variety of vaping experiences. Without further ado, you can get one for yourself on vaporesso.com for only $90.20, and you still get to choose from the 12 available color options.
