Appearance and the design of the Gen S Mod.

I think Vaporesso is a very beautiful gadget. I think the only drawback is the large dimensions of this device. It has an incredible special formulated rubber coating with a textured surface under the fingers feels warm and pleasant. The second the device’s weight is light with batteries installed 9just over 200g).

It does not look like a huge plastic “rattle”, it looks solid. The design is very beautiful and modern. It has a rectangular shape, rounded off. The new element here is the NRG-S tank, which is the same color and texture as the mod itself, it really makes the perfect and harmonious look of the device. The device is equipped with a 0.95 rectangular black and white screen in front of it. Just like the original Gen is.

Vaporesso Gen S juice filling image

Screen visibility is clear.

The Vaporesso Gen S is light weighted. It is 107 grams. There are 12 colors to choose from

Branding: a small inscription of Vaporesso in the middle of one side, and a little “V” logo on the bottom center at the other side? And log Gen S on the bottom of the Mod. The paint is enough reliable and it does not peel off the plastic. But the metal buttons may start to fall off in rough handling.

The device cover is located on the same side as the Vaporesso logo, right under the logo, there is a recess for the nail. The panel is held by four magnets, two magnets are in the lid, and another two are in the body.

There is an insulating sticker on the side, on which warnings are imprinted: do not put batteries with damaged braids, use only with a current output of ≥25A, and there are also links to the official website and Instagram account of Vaporesso.

On the plastic holder, that covers the filling of the device, the polarity of the batteries is marked. There is also an inscription there: Designed by Vaporesso/Made in China. The batteries fit well and are easy to install, and there is a stripe inside the tray to help you take batteries off.

Features and functions

The Vaporesso Gen S device has a lot of functions and modes as most Vaporesso mods have. There are Pulse Mode, Power Eco, Smart TC, and DIY Mode. Let’s see what DIY mode is. It is the mode, in which you can choose the standard modes of Power (with normal, hard, and of course soft preheats), Temp control (SS, Ni200, Ti, and one TCR memory slot), also Voltage mode is, Watt curve Mode, Bypass Mode, and Super Player Mode.

There are also smart and Auto modes in the menu settings. Mod uses a standard TCR, which can be configured in any Mode. The device is equipped with almost all modes. It is really great to have it all. There is a Super Player Mode – the mode of supporting very low resistance (from 0.03 Ohm), if the normal variwatt is set, when the winding is set below 0.05 Ohm, the mod automatically offers to enable this mode, which deserves your special attention.

Power Mode is an energy-saving Mode. When the voltage on the battery drops below 40%, the device suggests switching to it. The request can be disabled in the setting menu.

Vaporesso Gen S Menu

The Gen S menu is the same as in Gen Menu. There is a special button, which is between the plus and minus buttons. It is easy to use. Here is a quick start guide:

  • To switch on/off you should make five clicks the fire button.
  • For the menu enter you should make three clicks of the menu button.
  • To choose modes and scroll menu, use up and down buttons.
  • To leave the menu you should press fire.
  • If you click three times the fire button, you will adjust.

TCR and power adjustments can be done after you select the mode.

Power Mode

Gen S, as well as Mod Gen, has an Axon chip. Although the other, older models have Omni chip. This chip is also one of the best chips for vape. The Axon chip works similarly to how it did in the original Gen, which may indicate that they are updated, not modified hardware.

The Axon chip provides a responsive vape, that allows you to access s Pulse Mode, boosting the installed coil every 0.02s to give you pleasure with a delicate controlled vaping experience. With the Impulse Mode, you will get 27% more flavor and cloud satisfaction.

This Mod was tested on Sony VTC5A Batteries. The maximum wattage is 220W.

When I tried this Mod, I got the amp limit of 39 amps. It is normal for dual-battery mods nowadays. The volt limit with 0.64 –ohm coil was nearly 9.258. These are rather high results in comparison with other modern dual-battery mods, which show the trend of improving quality.

  • 2. Black Delrin 510 tip looks simple;
  • 3. Coil performance is too low;


So, in conclusion, I want to say that Vaporesso Gen S is a great kit, it differs a little from the original Gen, but in a very good and refreshing way. Buying one for yourself will either improve your existing mod collection or enhance your beginner vaping experience.

The tank is very good – great volume and a perfect combination of taste vs clouds size. The look and feel of the mod are remarkable. After days of using it, I still can’t get enough of it. Write in comments your opinion about it. Thanks
