Vapers, who switched to the “bright side” of vapor five or six years ago, is a little perplexed – manufacturers are less and less releasing high-power devices, and are focusing on the release of POD systems. Naturally, rarely anyone in such a situation wants to stay away, but at the same time, not every vaper agrees to switch to nicotine salt e-liquids. Especially for such vapers, sub-mods have been developed in which you can find features of both a standard box mod and a POD system. Vaporesso has repeatedly pleased vapers with its devices of this format, but as it turned out, the company’s engineers are constantly working, and evidence of this is the new interesting Vaporesso GEN Air 40 Pod Kit Mod.

The new pod-mod is equipped quite standardly, but at the same time, the vaper will find in the box everything that is necessary for comfortable use of the device, Therefore, In the vaper box You will find:
- Vaporesso GEN Air 40 Pod Kit
- Cartridge Gen Air 40 Cartridge
- Coil GTX 0.4Ohm Mesh Coil
- Coil GTX 0.8Ohm Mesh Coil
- Type-C USB cable
- Warranty card
It is worth paying tribute to the designers of Vaporesso, who managed to create the most convenient and practical GEN Air 40 Pod Kit. One of its features is excellent ergonomics, provided by the original shape of the device – a semi-circular one side and a flat second.
The device is quite compact – 103.05 * 31.55 * 20.55 mm, and not from a heavy series – it weighs 67 grams. Side-colored inserts are decorated with an unobtrusive geometric pattern, and the colors of the inserts are calm and unobtrusive.
The Vaporesso GEN Air 40 Pod Kit is available in seven colors – Dark Black, Matte Grey, Light Silver, Midnight Blue, Aurora Green, Twilight Gold, and Sakura Pink.
The GEN Air 40 is powered by the AXON chipset, well known to vapers, which has been used by the company more than once in other devices. Thanks to him, you can not only get a full set of protections and stable operation, but also the ability to set the operating voltage to 3.0 / 3.2 / 3.4 / 3.6 Volts. It is interesting that a separate button is provided for adjusting the voltage, next to which there are 4 LEDs. The device is activated using the round, slightly protruding “Fire” button.
The maximum power of 40 watts in the Vaporesso GEN Air 40 Pod Kit is provided by a built-in 1800 mAh battery, which is a pretty decent indicator for a device of this format. The battery is charged using the USB Type-C connector located on the bottom of the device, with a current of 2.5A, so the time it takes to charge the battery will be relatively short.
It is unlikely that anyone will argue that compact pod mods are confidently replacing traditional box mods and tanks for many vapers. And Vaporesso succeeds in the production of devices of just this format – just remember their Target, LUX, and GTX lines. Despite the fact that the company has already released quite a lot of pod-mods, its developers are constantly working on updating the range, and an example of this is the new device Vaporesso GEN Air 40 Pod Kit.
Gen Air 40 Cartridge
The company’s developers paid a lot of attention to the creation of the Gen Air 40 Cartridge. At first glance, this is a standard cartridge for a pod-mod, but the unique SSS Leak Resistance technology is used in it – complete protection against leakage.
The Vaporesso GEN Air 40 Pod Kit uses the GTX series of vaporizers; which is already well known to vapers, and there is also an RBA base in the line. All evaporators are on the grid, so there will be no problems with taste and bulk. When choosing an evaporator or coil for a serviced base; be aware that the maximum power is 40 watts, and the low resistance heating elements simply will not warm up properly.
The airflow in the device is regulated quite simply – there is a slider on the side surface of the cartridge; moving up and down which you can set the required puff from MTL to RDTL.
Refilling will not raise any questions – the cartridge must be removed from the battery pack; open the silicone plug and pour 4.5 ml of liquid into a small hole.
Conclusions and impressions
The Vaporesso GEN Air 40 Pod Kit turned out to be quite good and interesting, sometimes causing several questions, for example, why not make a simple display and equip it with a watt, or why put a powerful enough chip in such a simple device. But the answers to these questions are known only to developers. In any case, this sub-mod turned out to be very interesting not only from the visual side but also autonomous; productive, and versatile.
