The first thing Vaporesso says about the GEN S is “Power Isn’t For The Pros”. How about that? If you are already familiar with the original GEN then you would not have any issues getting the hang of the GEN S it may even feel like the same device. The GEN S is a next-generation high-powered dual battery mod rated at 220W. The device is supported by the upgraded AXON chip and comes with the all-new NRG-S tank that features cross-compatibility across a wide range of coils.

Design and Build
Straight out of the box, you can easily see the similarity between the GEN and the GEN S, especially since they have almost the same design. The GEN S is a rectangular mod measuring 145.5mm x 53mm x 30mm and weighing 275g with the batteries installed. Even at this, it is still a compact and easy-to-carry mod, something you should not have problems with even when vaping on-the-go.
At the top of the mod is a gold plated 510 connection that is stiff and well cut with smooth threading so you do not have issues fitting your tank. It is also centered and able to accommodate tanks up to 26mm in diameter without any overhang. The battery door stays in place thanks to a standard magnetic side-panel so it does not wobble. There is also a ribbon inside that makes it easy for you to remove the batteries.
On the front side of the device are a large fire button, a rectangular OLED screen, three adjustment buttons, and a micro USB port for charging the batteries. All of the buttons feel comfortable without any wiggling. The OLED screen is clear and bright, although, you may have issues with it outdoors. The micro USB port features 2.5A charging that can power the batteries in about 60 minutes.
The GEN S has something in common with many of the Vaporesso mods out there and that is a suite of features and modes that would make vaping all the more enjoyable. With the GEN S, you have three wattage modes: soft, normal, and hard. You also have Variable Voltage, Custom Wattage Curve, and Bypass Mode. There are the special modes like the Pulse Mode which is the default mode, the Smart TC, and Power Eco Mode. Accessing all of the modes is pretty simple. You just have to navigate through the menu, and thanks to the AON chipset, you would not have any issues with that.
The NRG-S Tank
One of the handy features of GEN S Kit has to be the NRG-S tank. In addition to its cross compatibility, the NRG-S comes with a bubble glass that can contain about 8ml of ejuice. With that much ejuice, you would not have to worry about refilling in a hurry. The tank sports the same color as the rest of the mod which is a plus. There is some knurling on both the top cap and airflow ring that helps with the grip. It is a 25.5mm tank so it will fit comfortably at the top of the GEN S mod.
To refill the tank is pretty easy and convenient. You simply slide the top cap to reveal a silicone-lined fill port that makes it easy for you to use large-tip ejuice bottles. Removing and replacing the coils is also as easy. You simply remove the base, unscrew the coil and fit in the coil of your choice.
The NRG-S tank comes with both the GT Meshed Coil and the GT4 Meshed coil. They both make use of Vaporesso’s upgraded meshed technology to deliver maximum interaction between your ejuice and the cotton, resulting in a more pleasurable vape.
If you are a fan of personalization then you will love the adjustable airflow feature on the NRG-S tank. There are two large airflow slots and the airflow control ring is on a stopper so you can completely close it when you need to.
Vaporesso did a good job with the GEN S and there is absolutely no doubt. If you are looking for simplicity and power, you might want to pick one up for yourself. It is available in 12 different colors. What is even better is that you can get the GEN S Vape Kit for just $90.20 on vaporesso.com.
