GEN S Mod + NRG-S Tank by Vaporesso Review

GEN S is another promising vape device from a renowned Chinese manufacturer, Vaporesso. Over the years, the company has delivered on their promise with a lineup of exciting vape devices like the Target Mini 2, Luxe, Polar, Armour Pro, and the original Gen. You can trust Vaporesso to deliver some of the best vapes to buy, especially if you love simplicity and high-performance. 

The GEN S is more or less a makeover of the original GEN, featuring an output wattage of 220W thanks to its dual 18650 batteries. It also features the latest AXON chipset from Vaporesso that overcomes learning curve so you do not have a hard time getting the hang of the device. It is also paired with the promising NRG-S tank that finishes up the vape deal.

GEN S Mod: Design and Build Quality

Measuring 90mm x 53mm x 30mm without the NRG-S tank makes the GEN S a pretty decent average-sized mod, one that you should not have any issues with when you carry it around. It weighs about 107g so it is reassuringly sturdy for a dual battery mod. One interesting feature of the GEN S is the paint finish. It has a semi-rubberized coating that is soft when you hold it. The front and back panels are dimpled with a nice curve so they not only help your grip but also feel comfortable in your hand.

On the front face of the GEN S Mod is the single fire button that you use to activate the batteries when you want to take a drag, as well as turn the device on and off. There is also an OLED screen that is clear and bright so you do not have issues when you are working on the settings. Below the OLED screen are three adjustment buttons that help you to navigate through the menu. There is also the micro USB port that utilizes 2.5A charging to power the batteries in about 60 minutes. 

Features and Functions

The GEN S comes with Pulse Mode as the default mode that delivers a leap in flavor delivery while regulating the warmness of the vapor. You also get to choose from three wattage modes: soft, normal, and hard. You also get to choose from Variable Voltage Mode, Custom Wattage Curve Mode, Bypass Mode, Power Eco, and Smart TC mode, all fo which you can select from the menu.

NRG-S Tank

As far as sub-ohm tanks go, the NRG-S is a pretty decent tank. It has some knurling on the top cap and airflow control ring that helps your grip when you need to adjust the airflow or turn the top cap. The NRG-S tank sports a base diameter of 25.5mm so it fits just right on the GEN S. The ejuice capacity of the NRG-S tank is great. With the bubble glass, it can hold 8ml of ejuice, and with the straight glass, it can hold 5ml of ejuice. With this much ejuice, you do not have to worry about constantly refilling your tank.

Filling your tank does not have to be a hassle, and thanks to the NRG-S tank’s easy-to-fill mechanism, you should not have any issues filling the tank with ejuice. The top cap slides and swivels back to expose a large silicone-lined fill port. The top cap is firn enough so it does not open accidentally. 

At the base of the tank are two large airflow slots that help you add more uniqueness to your vaping. The airflow control ring is on a stopper so you can close it off completely when you need to.

The NRG-S tank features cross-compatibility across the entire Vaporesso GT coil range, as well as coils in the SMOK Baby Beast lineup, giving you a plethora of vaping styles you can enjoy from just one tank. The coils screw into the base of the tank and then thread into the chimney. 


GEN S Kit comes with two out of the nine GT coils:

  • 0.18ohm Single Mesh Coil (50-85W)
  • 0.15ohm Dual Mesh Coil (50-75W)

One thing both of these coils have in common in airflow. They are both airy coils but they can be restricted down to deliver a slightly restricted lung hit simply by cutting the airflow. 

The 0.18ohm Single Mesh Coil comes preinstalled in the NRG-S Tank. The coil delivers amazing flavor, something you do not expect from a single mesh coil. The 0.15ohm Dual Mesh Coil comes as a replacement in the kit. It is no doubt more flavorful than the single mesh coil but the cloud production seems to be the same, warm and dense. 


Vaporesso’s GEN S is a great mod, both for beginners and experienced vapers. It is lightweight, packed with a suite of amazing modes, and delivers great TC performance. Add that to the NRG-S sub-ohm tank that allows you to use a wide variety of coils to deliver personalized vaping experiences. The GEN S together with the NRG-S tank is a combo that would not leave you disappointed. You can get it in 12 variant of colors on the Vaporesso online store for just $90.20.
