    Just creating a thread for the Vaporesso Gen because I have no doubt a lot of them were bought at VapeCon!

    It's not very often I buy a non-high-end product but there is something about the Vaporesso Gen that just speaks to me! So when H2Vape had it on special at VapeCon I grabbed one! It really is an awesome mod! It looks and feels great! No rattles and beautifully made! I think @Vaporesso has hit a home run with this one! Some people don't like the bronze fire button but it matches my Aspire Cleito 120 Pro in bronze perfectly!

    Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

    Got myself one red Gen last Thursday from Sir Vape , and boy ,oh boy am I GLAD !
    Flawless and faultless mod , straight forward and great power , bragged with it and
    @Rude Rudi went to get one but alas all the colored ones were sold out , only black left.
    I guess this is a winner for Vaporesso, well done , @Rob Fisher , glad you could lay your hands on one !
    @Silver , did you manage to scoop one up too ?

    I did indeed @ARYANTO !

    I bought a black one from Gadget Fundi - the main main Gino gave me a good price on this as well as 4 VTC6 batteries to go with it. I went for the black colour option.

    Batteries are being charged right now - should be operational tomorrow.
    I am excited to start using it.

    I've had my gen for about a month now. No problems and an excellent daily driver. I've actually been wondering whether you can take the bronze plastic button and ask someone to machine a copy in actual bronze. Niche I know, but imagine that cold smooth button press when taking a drag :D

    You will be able two, Takes 7 screws to removed the inside from the mod and the fire button is a round plastic button, Sure it can be changed to a CNC machined one easily.

    With the fancy colour and touch devices of today I really like the idea of a mod going back to the simpler screens. I can't wait for the feedback on this but knowing vaporesso, I am sure the Gen is going to be a Gem... See what I did there :-D

    I had that same idea for my Pulse 80W, but after opening it turned out the plastic button had a large molded one piece frame which acted as a return spring/ locating mechanism.

    Most mods with plastic button I opened had a frame that held all the buttons. Normally the cast metal buttons are individual. One could alwayse cap the plastic button but it still does not feel the same as a proper metal button.

    This mod in black looks awesome, looking to get one to match my black OFRF.

    Just a question on those who own it, how's the fire power on this? Can it be compared to something or is it on a league of its own?

    I currently have a Pulse 80 and Alpha One - If you can say it dominates either of these then i'm sold.

    I dont usually buy much other than HE gear but this got my attention as well.
    Perhaps it had something to do with @Silver also getting one :D

    I just ordered a black one from The Vape Den just because of this pic. FOMO strikes again.

    Being in Cape Town, I missed out on VapeCon so I'll allow myself this one. Also got it at a very good price with loyalty discount.

    I didn't make vapecon either but I saw the Reuleaux RG Gen 3 and got overcome by a sudden case of the wants. Then by accident and no fault of my own, a luxotic DF also landed in my cart. To add to that something else and equally very strange happened around the same time on another site I was browsing. I noticed that it said there was two items in my cart and when I went to look, I saw a Profile RDA and RTA had fell into it. I couldn't be rude and say i didn't want them at that point... after all I am a fairly decent human being so I had to pay for them. Of Course you need to have a few extra supplies like 6mm wick and mesh strips so I was forced to get those as well... :wasntme:

    I understand this deeply, sometimes you slip and accidentally buy a new mod or 2. And in the classifieds, through slight miscommunication you end up buying bundles from people...

    I fear I may have an accident in the near future concerning a black Gen mod, it will be unfortunate but ultimately unavoidable.

    Unfortunately there is absolutely no outcome where she simply understands.

    But good luck with that ;)

    A pair of shoes or a shopping day out to the same value as the vape gear always seems to counterbalance the "force".
