Design and Build Quality

The GEN S is a pretty sturdy device, weighing in at 110g without the batteries installed. It sports the same rectangular form like the original GEN with curved side panels that make it comfortable to hold. The device sports a rubber coating that not just feels great, but it is also scratch and fingerprint resistant, this means that the device will not start to look old in a hurry. 

At the top is a gold plated 510 screw-less connection with well cut out threads. The 510 connection is centered at the top and it can accommodate even tanks up to 26mm in diameter without any overhang.

At the front face of the device is a 0.91-inch OLED screen that is simple, detailed, and clear enough to read and navigate through. The main fire button is placed at the top of the OLED screen. It is much larger than the rest of the buttons on the mod. There are also three adjustment buttons below the screen that help to navigate the menu and tweak your settings. 

The GEN S sports a full side panel as a battery door with a small latch at the bottom of the mod. The battery door is magnetic which is by far the most durable type of battery door as it does not shake while you vape or move around. 

NRG-S Tank Specifications

  • Size: 52 x 30mm (with bubble glass)
  • Tank Weight: 70g
  • E-liquid Capacity: upto 8ml (2ml TPD)
  • Coils: GT range – not compatible with GTX
  • Adjustable airflow
  • Top fill (push slide)

The NRG-S Tank: Brief

The tank uses a simple refilling mechanism. There is an arrow on the side of the top cap that tells you which direction to push the cap. You just need to push the top cap in that direction to expose a large fill port. Once you are done filling the tank with ejuice, you simply return the top cap into position.

It is just as easy to install or replace the coils in the tank. You simply remove the base of the tank, unscrew and remove the coil, then insert the new coil into the base and screw the base back into the tank. Although, you cannot do this with a full tank.

Using The GEN S Mod by Vaporesso

  • 5 clicks of the fire button turn the device on and off.
  • 3 clicks of the fire button lock the plus and minus buttons.
  • Long press the mode button, or press three times to enter the menu.
  • Use the plus and minus buttons to move in the menu and press the mode button to select.

Performance

The GEN S kit comes with two out of the entire GT coil series:

  • GT Meshed Coil
  • GT4 Meshed Coil

Let’s start with the GT Meshed 0.18ohm coil. The coil is recommended to be used at 50 to 85 watts but is best at 65 to 80 watts. When you open up the airflow with this coil, you begin to get a full flavor experience. You may want to tweak around with the wattage to find your sweet spot, but overall, the GT Meshed coil produces decent flavor and vapor.

The GT4 Meshed coil is a game-changer. It is recommended to be used at 30 to 70 watts but is best st 45 to 60 watts. The cloud production is good, and it delivers even more flavor than the GT Meshed Coil. 

Verdict

If you are looking for the best vape mod 2020, it is not a bad idea looking at the GEN S. Considering that the GEN has been successful for all this time, and the GEN S is more like a make-over of the original, it still makes a decent vape mod even for its price range.
