  • Not as many functions as the full-size pump, but still very comfortable. A must-have for back to work! Oct 08, 2019

  • I purchased this pump when going out of town for a weekend without my son. I like the small compact size; I could fit it in my purse on-the-go. I do not like how speed and suction are not separate. Oct 01, 2019

    Great for use once and awhile, but wouldn't recommend as an everyday pump. My S2 has better suction. Sep 23, 2019

  • We travel to see family a lot so this is so helpful in those first few weeks and I don’t pump much so it’s nice to have one that doesn’t take up much space and is portable! Sep 19, 2019

  • Small but strong! Love this pump for all travel needs and those on-the-go moments especially with a newborn. Aug 22, 2019

  • This pump was an amazing contribution to my pumping journey. It made it easier to pack and pump on the go. The pump is a bit louder than my classic pump. but super convenient Aug 16, 2019

  • Pumping portability at its finest! This pump fits with all of the Spectra pump parts. I wouldn’t use this product as the only pump, but as a supplement to the S2 (which has no portability). Aug 02, 2019

  • Perfect for on the go!! Not quite as powerful as the full size S1/S2 but still more powerful than any other handheld portable pump I've used! Jul 31, 2019

  • Started to malfunction within 4 weeks. Would “reboot” randomly during pumping, make loud pumping noises, and finally refused to shut off. I did submit a warranty claim, and spectra sent me a new one. May 26, 2019

    This was awesome for travel and taking back and forth to the office, but I ended up needing to exclusively pump and this was not ideal for such frequent use. Apr 19, 2019

  • Great for on the go! Small and portable! I would bring a purse and bring this in it! Apr 04, 2019

  • The portability is amazing but unfortunately my output with this is not as much. It is disappointing that you can only control vacuum and not cycles like on the bigger spectra. Mar 31, 2019

  • I absolutely LOVE this! The power is comparable to my regular sized pumps, and it easy to transport. It also lasts at least 5 20 minute sessions. Mar 15, 2019

    Small and portable. Definitely not my every day pump, but great for work travel when I don't know if there will be outlets or a dedicated pumping space Feb 19, 2019

  • I won this in a giveaway. Love that its rechargeable but feel like it needs more settings options Feb 15, 2019

    Super convenient, but definitely doesn't work as well as the S1. Feb 05, 2019

  • I have the regular S1 pump for my everyday pump, but this pump is so handy for the on the go. I don’t know if it would work as an everyday pump, but it’s definitely convenient when I’m out and about! Jan 03, 2019

  • I work in healthcare and needed something small and portable to fit in my white coat so that I can pump at work. I use this in combo with the Freemie cups for the perfect solution! So easy! Dec 13, 2018

  • Moms on the go NEED this pump! It's so lightweight and simple to use. Plus, it's both quiet and powerful. Best pump I have ever used! Dec 11, 2018

  • Very easy to travel with, but doesn’t have the power of the Spectra2. It works perfect for just a pump or two during the day, but really need to use my larger one when I get home to truly feel empty. Dec 02, 2018

  • Love the portability of this pump! Oct 15, 2018

  • I love how portable this is. It’s a great option to have, though I don’t have the S1 to compare. Seems like a decent amount of suction compared to my Madela pump in style. Oct 12, 2018

  • The S9 is louder than the S1 but very portable. Easy to use and adjust to meet your needs. The recharge battery lasts for a days or more of pumping. Sep 29, 2018

  • Love it pump on the go lite weight Aug 28, 2018

  • Love having this portable pump. As it can be plugged or unplugged and rechargeable. Love this pump in addition for the transition to use as single or double pump. Same gentle quiet use. Love light, Aug 09, 2018

  • I got this pump cause I thought I would need something incase I was out. However, it doesn't suction well and doesn't empty my supply either. Wish I had got a hospital grade one. Jul 14, 2018

  • Loved this pump. Very portable and easy to use. Suction was amazing Mar 20, 2018

  • The suction on this pump is not great.. the battery does not last long. I like that I can move around and pump but just wish it actually worked bettef Mar 11, 2018

  • I have this and the Medela freestyle. Neither have the power of a plugin but the Medela comes close and has a way to attach it to you so you’re truly hands free. I do not recommend. Feb 20, 2018

  • Great for on-the-go pumping or if you're an infrequent pumper. It's a great companion to my S1 but I wouldn't recommend this as an everyday pump if you pump more than twice a day. Jan 19, 2018

  • I loved my other Spectra pumps so I was excited to get this pump but it has poor sunction and I would get a fourth of what I normally got when I used it. Dec 27, 2017

  • Great for on-the-go pumping! Highly recommend for working moms and any mom who wants a portable pump you can toss in any purse. Dec 23, 2017

  • I've started using my S9 on the go to replace using the Medela Harmony manual pump. It's practically changed my life as a pumping mom. It's not meant for full-time pumping. Jul 14, 2017

  • Loved this pump. I was able to visit my parents for a week when baby was 6 weeks and I had to pump because well, boob issues, it was small effective and easy to travel with. Absolute winner in my book May 27, 2017

  • I loved the size and portability of this pump, but it stopped working after only a dozen uses and I had to return it to Spectra. Maybe best for only an occasional pumper. Oct 27, 2016

  • Loved it so much I bought a second one. Portable, hands free, small, powerful, digital, rechargeable. I would take this over the Medela EVERY day!! Jul 05, 2016
