Design and Build
The GEN S sports a rubberized coating that is soft when you hold it, and at the same time is fingerprint free so your device constantly looks new. The mod measures 90mm x 53mm x 30mm without the NRG-S tank, and it weighs about 107g, so as far as dual battery mods go, the GEN S is a pretty average mod. The front and back panels are dimpled to help your grip, and they feature a nice curve so it feels comfortable in your hand.
Quite similar to the original GEN, the GEN S also features a front-facing fire button, OLED screen, two adjustment buttons, a mode button, and a micro USB port for charging. All of the buttons are firm and easy to press. The OLED screen is significantly clearer and brighter than the one on the original GEN. The micro USB port features a 2.5A quick charge that can power up the dual batteries in about 60 minutes.
At the top of the GEN S is a gold played 510 connection with clean-cut threads. The 510 connection is centered at the top of the device and can take even tanks up to 26mm in diameter without any overhang. The battery door features magnetic side panels that fit snuggly and don’t wiggle. There is a ribbon inside the battery tray that makes it easy for you to remove the batteries when needed.
It comes with a suite of protective features that make vaping even safer. It comes with Short Circuit Protection, Burn Protection, No Load Protection, Overtime Protection, Low Resistance Protection, Low Power Protection, Overcharge Protection, ESD Circuit Protection, and Pass-Through Protection.
Thanks to the AXON chipset, sifting through the different modes of the GEN S should not be any hassle. You can access modes like the Pulse Mode that fires every 0.2 seconds to maintain the temperature control settings previously imputed, creating a delicate controlled vaping experience that results in both a leap in flavor output and the warmness of the vapor. Other than the Pulse Mode, here are some other modes you get to choose from:
- Power Eco: Once your battery level drops below 40%, this mode automatically kicks in.
- Smart TC: The GEN S is set to automatically enter Temperature Control Mode when a Stainless Steel, Titanium, or Nickel coil is detected.
- DIY: This model comes with the more common Vaporesso vape modes.
You also get to choose from modes like Variable Wattage, Custom Curve Wattage, Bypass, Super Player, System Set, and Smart Variable Wattage mode.
The NRG-S Sub-Ohm Tank
If there was to be a major difference between the original GEN and the GEN S, this would be it. The NRG-S sub-ohm tank sports the same color as the rest of the mod. It also has some knurling at the top cap and base that help with your grip. The tank has a 25.5mm base diameter so it fits perfectly on the GEN S. The NRG-S tank sports a standard wide bore 510 Delrin drip tip that is rather plain. It comes with a bubble glass that can contain 8ml of ejuice so you don’t have to worry about constantly refilling. There is also a straight glass that contains 5ml of ejuice.
Filling the tank is a breeze thanks to the top-fill mechanism. You simply slide the top cap to reveal a large fill port that you can eve use with large-tip ejuice bottles. At the base of the tank are two airflow slots that are fully adjustable so you get to vape just how you want. The airflow control ring is on a stopper that allows you to close off the airflow completely when you need to.
The NRG-S sub-ohm tank comes with the GT Meshed coil and the GT4 Meshed coil. Although, with the tank, you can use just about any coil in the Vaporesso GT coil lineup, as well as SMOK Baby Beast coils. The coils screw into the base of the tank and thread into the chimney. Both the GT and GT4 Meshed coils are airy coils that still deliver a good amount of flavor and vapor, especially since you can tweak your settings around to find your sweet spot.
