Vaporesso Gen Nano Kit: cloud chasing vape in the palm of your hand
The Vaporesso Gen family expands and after the Gen and Gen S models, here is the latest arrival and also the smallest of the three, the Gen Nano, a box with a built-in battery combined with the 22 mm GTX tank atomizer. The doubt is legitimate: was there really a need to create a third model of Gen mod?
I’ll find out soon but as always first of all let’s take a look at the contents of the package.

1 x GTX 0.2 ohm Mesh coil (pre-installed)
1 x GTX 0.6 ohm Mesh coil
1 x Spare glass tube (2 ml)
3 x O-ring
1 x USB cable
1 x GTX coil reminder card

DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY
Vaporesso has been standing out for years for being an avant-garde hardware manufacturer both in terms of technological innovation and purely aesthetic. The Gen and Gen S mods impressed me very positively both from a qualitative point of view and also for their design. The Gen Nano in the sign of continuity, retains all the features of its older sisters, presenting itself as the miniature version of the previous Gen models, with the same clean, essential and minimal lines. A compact and light mod, with a modern, sober and elegant appearance.
I will seem repetitive, but even Gen Nano conveys the same feeling of high build quality found on the two previous models, thanks to a perfect combination of solidity and lightness. The feeling in the hands is unique, thanks to a zinc alloy shell and a 4-layer coating, which gives a rubberized, smooth and incredibly comfortable feeling to the touch; in addition, the external layer is declared scratch resistant and fireproof. Always talking about the constructive goodness of this mod, it must be said that I have not encountered any problems with the box 510 attachment (the pin is floating), as well are very well made and without any slight lateral movement, the four buttons with which it is equipped.
Quite proportionate to the size of the box, is the combined 22 mm GTX tank, an atomizer that does not present any major aesthetic novelties, but which still seems to me made with good build quality. It is clear however, and I have said it in previous reviews of the brand, that in the Vaporesso kits it is always the mod that plays the lion’s share, because it is on the mods that the Asian manufacturer focuses and dedicates most to introduce significant technological innovations.
ERGONOMICS AND PORTABILITY
It is enough to report the numbers of the Gen Nano to understand the portability level of this kit: height 70.3 mm, width 40.3 mm, thickness 24.2 mm for a weight of only 83.8 grams! Portability combined with ergonomics thanks to the slightly rounded lines and rounded corners that allow a solid grip and incredible handling. Perfectly positioned and easily accessible for anyone, are the large fire button, as well as the three function keys and the display. With the matching GTX atomizer, the kit has an overall height of 115 mm and a total weight of about 135 grams, which in my opinion is very low considering that Vaporesso has created a kit for lovers of DL vape within the limits of the 80 watts that the mod is able to deliver.
FUNCTIONS & PERFORMANCES
I just mentioned that Gen Nano is capable of delivering up to 80 watts using a built-in 2000mAh battery. The device has a micro USB port with a 2A charge that completes the charging cycle in just over 60 minutes. Also on this device Vaporesso confirmed the Axon Chip circuit, which as we have already seen, is really rich in functions and above all it is very intuitive and easy to approach. The 0.91″ OLED display is bright and well readable and shows all the information that can be used by the vaper to better manage its vape.
The box turns on/off with the usual sequence of 5 close clicks of the fire button while with 3 close clicks of the same button the function key lock is activated/deactivated.
It has been said that the Axon circuit is equipped with numerous functions; it is accessed by pressing the lowest key of the mod 3 times quickly (the one immediately below the “+” and “-” buttons). Inside the “DIY MODE” menu there are all the more traditional modes available to a vape mod (variwatt mode, varivolt, temperature control, customized wattage curve, bypass mode). Also in this circumstance it seems right to dwell on the most interesting aspects of the chipset already described in the reviews of the Gen and Gen S kits:
- PULSE MODE – this function provides acceleration to delivery every 0.02 seconds, providing a constant hit and greater power to the vape for the entire delivery interval;
- POWER ECO – is a function that, if activated, prolongs the life of the batteries;
- SMART TC – is the “intelligent” function of the temperature control that automatically recognizes a resistance for the TC and its material, providing the optimal setup for that coil.
During my tests I wanted to verify the value of these functions and with pleasure I verified their actual effectiveness. The PULSE MODE for example really provides a powerful vape for the entire time interval of the delivery; as well as the POWER ECO function that from our tests seemed to be able to increase the longevity of the batteries by about 10% compared to other similar mods. Vaporesso Gen Nano performs just as well as the previous models and its performance is first-class while maintaining a rather competitive price.
EASE OF USE
Acting and interacting with the Axon circuit is extremely easy. In addition to the fire button, there are three function keys below the display, a system that considerably simplifies the settings box functions. The button at the bottom allows you to access the settings menu and confirm each choice made. With the “+” and “-” buttons, on the other hand, you can move between the various menu items. All very easy and intuitive.
GTX Tank 22 mm – FLAVOR
In this Kit, there’s the 22 mm GTX tank atomizer combined with the Gen Nano mod. It is an atomizer with rather classic lines, 44.6 mm high (510 pin excluded) and with a weight of about 51.5 grams. The tank has a capacity of 3.5ml with bubble glass and 2ml with standard glass (TPD compliant); from its name it is easy to understand that the tank uses the Vaporesso GTX coil series which can boast 7 different types of mesh coils and an RBA base. A 0.2 ohm GTX Mesh coil (45-60 watt vaping range) and a second 0.6 ohm (20-30 watt) coil are provided in this kit.
The GTX tank is a top refill atomizer (just unscrew the top cap) but alas it does not have both an anti-leakage system and a childproof system. In fact, this is probably the biggest flaw of an atomizer that, without having transcendental features, performs its task very well above all thanks to its coils. At the base of the tank there is a ring for the airflow control with a triple slot (completely partializable and equipped with a limit switch) with dimensions of 8.8 x 2 mm. The supplied delrin drip tip is with 510 connection has an inlet hole with a diameter of about 5.7 mm and a outlet hole with a diameter of about 9.5 mm.
To replace the coils, you need to unscrew the base of the tank and extract the coil housed simply by pressure inside the tank with the now widespread plug & play system.
The GTX 0.2 ohm provides an excellent aromatic yield with full-bodied and fat vapor, for a classic direct to lung vape even if not too exasperated. A coil that expresses itself best with liquids with a basically sweet and creamy aromatic structure. The 0.6 ohm GTX mesh coil, on the other hand, offers the possibility of having a typical flavor chasing vape, which can be managed playing with the airflow control. The aromatic performances are absolutely valuable as this coil offers a very calibrated draw and able to facet even the most structured and complex mixes well.
The Gen Nano Kit by Vaporesso offers the possibility to have a good direct to lung vape with a very compact solution, as long as you do not disdain owning a mod with a built-in battery. The GTX series coils in addition guarantee (like almost all Vaporesso coils) aromatic performances of a very high level and difficult to match at the moment on the market.
