Vaporesso GEN-S 220W Kit Review: Featuring the NRG-S Tank
Fresh from the oven is the GEN-S 220W Kit from Vaporesso. It features both GEN-S Kit and the all-new NRG-S Tank. The GEN-S is a dual 18650 battery mod (the batteries are not included in the kit) that fires at 220 watts. The device uses Vaporesso’s latest chipset, the AXON chip, and it comes with every mode that you can think of. It features even richer flavor output and vapor, all you need to do is to set it to your preference.
It is quite similar to the original GEN in terms of the design, but it is available in even more additional colors. In addition to the GEN-S, Vaporesso also has some of the best mods up their sleeve, some of them include the Target Mini 2, Luxe, Polar, Armour Pro, and the original Gen.
Design and Build
The device sports a rectangular build. It measures 90mm x 53mm x 30mm without the tank installed making it an average-sized box mod. The device measures 107grams, this is incredibly lightweight for a dual battery box mod. On one of the best things is the paint finish. It has a soft touch with a semi-rubberized coating just like in the GEN and GEN Nano.
Vaporesso’s GEN-S features dimpled front and back panels with a nice curve that lets it sit comfortably in your palm. On the front face of the device are the fire button, the LCD screen, three adjustment buttons, and a micro USB port.
The GEN-S features a spring-loaded, gold plated 510 connection that is centred at the top of the mod and can take up to 26mm tanks without any overhang.
Below the device is the battery compartment and a magnetically secured battery door that fits snuggly without any movement. There is a ribbon inside the battery tray that allows you to remove the batteries without any hassle.
Functions and Features
The Vaporesso GEN-S is an absolute powerhouse that can fire at up to 220W in wattage mode and from 200 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit in TC mode. Once you are inside the settings menu, you have access to the variety of vape modes available on the Vaporesso GEN-S. Here are some of the modes:
- Pulse Mode: This is the default mode. It is designed to optimize the vaping experience by maintaining the temperature of the vape.
- Power Eco: This mode is designed to automatically kick in when the battery drops below 40%.
- Smart TC: Once a Stainless Steel, Titanium or Nickel coil is detected, the Vaporesso GEN-S is set to automatically enter Temperature Control mode.
- DIY Mode: With this mode comes the more common Vaporesso vape modes.
Some of its other modes include Variable Wattage, Custom Curve of Wattage, Bypass, Super Player Mode, System Set, and Smart Variable Wattage.
The NRG-S is a tank with a 25.5mm base diameter so it fits just snuggly on the GEN-S mod. The tank has the same textured design as the rest of the mod. What makes the difference between this tank and the many other tanks out in the market is its 8ML ejuice capacity. This means that you will not have to refill regularly.
Taking the tank apart is pretty easy, and this comes in hand when you want to clean the device. The tank features an easy-to-use top-fill mechanism that is very comfortable. You just need to slide the top cap in the direction of the arrow to reveal the fill port. The fill port is large enough for large-tip bottles to avoid spilling your ejuice.
On the NRG-S Tank are two airflow slots that are fully adjustable thanks to the airflow control ring. Adjusting the airflow is smooth and easy, and thanks to the stopper, you can close the airflow completely when you want.
The tank features a 510 Delrin drip tip, and it comes with both the GT4 Meshed Coil and the GT Meshed Coil. Both coils are great at flavor production and vapor output. You might want to tweak the settings around to find the particular settings that suit you. The tank is also suited to take on any of Vaporesso’s GT coils. It is also compatible with Smok Baby Beast Coil series so the array of vaping options is endless. The coils screw into the base of the NRG-S tank and then thread into the chimney.
