Since 2015 when Vaporesso first came into the market, they have not ceased to deliver high-powered vape devices that fit all levels and styles of vapers. Today, the GEN S 220W Mod Starter Kit takes the stage, a refresh Kit for the original Vaporesso GEN, and possibly the best-vaping mod 2020. The GEN S is a dual 18650 battery mod that fires up to 220W. It is supported by Vaporesso’s latest chipset, the AXON chip, and comes with almost every mode that you could want on a box mod. 

The GEN S comes equipped with the NRG-S tank that makes it stand out from the original GEN. The tank sports a base diameter of 25.5mm and can accommodate a massive 8ml of ejuice. It also features cross-compatibility across the entire  Vaporesso GT coil range, as well as coils from the SMOK Baby Beast Coil range, giving you a plethora of vaping experiences to enjoy.

Vaporesso GEN S Mod: Design and Build 

Vaporesso’s GEN S is a sleek and lightweight mod, especially since it is a dual battery mod. It features dimpled rubber-coated side panels that grip well. Together with a full tank of ejuice nd the dual batteries installed, the GEN S weighs in at 269g which is reassuringly sturdy in the hand and feels durable enough for daily use.

On the front face of the GEN S is a distinct fire button that turns the mod on and off, as well as fires when you need to take a drag. The OLED screen is bright and easy to read thanks to its crisp display. There are also two adjustment buttons and one mode button. All of the buttons are audible and responsive. There is a micro USB charging port at the base of the mod that features a 2.5A charging system that can recharge your batteries in 60 minutes. The USB port is also used for firmware upgrades. 

At the base of the GEN S is the battery door that opens to reveal the battery tray. The door uses a standard magnetic side-plate style that ensures that it does not wobble when closed. There is also a convenient ribbon inside the battery tray that makes it easy to remove the batteries. 

The threading of the 510 connection is well cut and silky smooth so it offers a good level of stiffness once you fix your tank in. The 510 connection happily sits the 25.5mm NRG-S tank with no overhang, this makes it perfect for most tanks on the market. Also, the centered 510 is slightly elevated to protect the top of the mod from wear. 

Using The Vaporesso GEN S Mod

The GEN S comes with a suite of features and modes that can be accessed from the menu, and thanks to the AXON chip, navigating through the menu should be a breeze. There is Pulse Mode, Power Eco, Smart TC, and DIY Mode. In DIY Mode, you can choose any of the standard modes: soft, normal, and hard), Temp Control (SS, Ni200, Ti, and one TCR memory slot), Voltage Mode, Watt Curve Mode, Bypass Mode, and Super Player Mode. Here is a simple guide to get you started:

  • Five clicks of the fire button turn the GEN S Mod on and off
  • Three clicks of the menu button activate the menu
  • The Up and Down buttons are to scroll the menu, the mode button is to accept
  • One-click of the fire button exits the menu
  • Three clicks of the fire button lock the adjustment buttons

NRG S Tank

The NRG S tank comes with a bubble glass that can contain 8ml of ejuice. It also comes with a straight glass that can contain 5ml of ejuice. At the top of the tank is a standard wide bore 510 Delrin drip tip that is rather plain. The NRG-S tank can be taken apart for easy cleaning and maintenance.

Filling the ejuice tank is easy. You simply slide the top cap in the direction marked by an arrow to expose a large silicone-lined fill port that makes it easy for you to use large-tip ejuice bottles. At the base of the tank are two airflow holes and an airflow control ring that you can use to adjust the airflow. The airflow control ring is on a stopper so you can shut it off completely when you need to. 

Together with the NRG-S tank are two of the Vaporesso GT coils, the 0.18 GT Meshed Coil, and the 0.15 GT4 Meshed Coil. The 0.18 GT Meshed coil is an airy coil that is rated at 50 to 85 watts. It produces a good amount of flavor especially considering it is a single mesh. The 0.15 GT4 Meshed Coil is rated at 50 to 75 watts. It delivers much better flavor than the GT Meshed coil. 

Changing the coils is just as easy as filling the ejuice tank. The coils screw into the base of the tank and thread into the chimney. You simply remove the base of the tank, unscrew the coil, and screw in the new one. 


Vaporesso did a good job with the GEN S. It is easy to use, delivers smooth draws, and coupled with the NRG-S tank that allows you to enjoy as many vaping experiences as there are. If you do not already have the original GEN, then you will want to consider getting this GEN S. You can get it for $90.20 on https://vaporesso.com
