Build Quality and Design
Vaporesso’s GEN S is a solid and well-built mod that has a soft feel. Vaporesso claims that the casing of the GEN S made up of 4 layers of coating that ends up giving it a soft rubber-like feel while still making it feel smooth in your hand. Thanks to the dimpled side panels, you would not have an issue with the device slipping from your hand. The GEN S weighs about 107 grams which are pretty about 107 pretty standard grams. The device does not sport any fancy flashing lights or gaudy logos so it looks pretty simple which is a plus.
The GEN S features a front-facing 0.91-inch OLED screen that is clear and bright, accompanied by a fire button, three adjustment buttons, and a micro USB port that uses2.5A quick charge system to power up the dual batteries in about 60 minutes. The battery door uses a standard magnetic side-plate style so it does not wiggle while you move or vape. There is a ribbon inside the battery tray that makes it easy for you to remove the batteries.
An assortment of modes is something Vaporesso mods have been known for, and the GEN S is not different. With the GEN S, you have Pulse Mode as the default mode that amplifies the flavor output and the regulates the temperature of the vapor. You also have Power Eco, Smart TC, and DIY mode. In DIY mode, you can choose any of the standard modes like normal, soft, and hard preheats, Temperature Control (SS, Ni200, Ti, and one TCR memory slot), Voltage Mode, Watt Curve Mode, Bypass Mode, and Super Player Mode.

- Enter Menu: Three clicks of the menu button
- Use plus and minus adjustment buttons to scroll the menu, and the menu button to accept

Getting To Know The NRG-S Sub-Ohm Tank
The NRG-S sub-ohm tank might just be one of the major game-changers in GEN S Kit. The tanks come with a straight glass that can contain 5ml of ejuice and another bubble glass that can contain 8ml of ejuice so you do not have to constantly refill. At the top of the tank is a standard wide bore 510 Delrin drip tip that looks pretty plain.
The tank uses a simple sliding fill method that is marked by an arrow on the top cap. Just slide the top cap in that direction to reveal a large fill hole that makes it easy for you to fill using large tip bottles. The airflow control ring has some knurling on it that makes it look great and also helps with the grip.
One of the profound features of the NRG-S tank is its’ cross-compatibility. It is compatible with the entire GT lineup as well as SMOK Baby Beast coils, giving you a lot of options when you need to vape. The tank itself comes with two of the GT coils:
- The GT Meshed Coil
- The GT4 Meshed Coil
The GT Meshed coil is a 0.18ohms coil that is rated at 50 to 85 watts. It is an airy coil but it produces good flavor especially with the airflow turned halfway down. It is best around 60 watts, but you may want to tweak around until you find your sweet spot. The GT4 Meshed coil is a 0.15ohm coil that is rated at 50 to 75 watts. This coil produced significantly more flavor than the GT Meshed coil. It is best around 65 watts.
Since coils are not an issue with the NRG-S tank’s cross compatibility, and the GEN S itself is a pretty decent mod, you will have a great time experimenting with different vaping experiences. The GEN S is another win from Vaporesso and it would make a good addition to your vaping collection if you do not already have the original GEN.
