S1 S2 and S9

Spectra S1 Plus PumpsDeciding between Spectra pumps

You may be wondering — which Spectra pump is best. This hospital-grade double electric pump allows you to pump both breasts at the same time, helping to make your sessions a little quicker. The S1 pump’s adjustable settings (including massage mode and expression mode) allow you to find a setting that’s right for you. Additionally, this great breast pump has a backflow protector. This will help protect your baby from mold, bacteria, and mildew. But you may still be thinking, “Why should I get a Spectra pump?” Well, the Spectra S1, Spectra S9, and Spectra S2 features all include:

  • Backflow Protection
  • Customizable Suction Settings
  • Two-phase cycling
  • AC Adaptor
  • LCD Display
  • And More!

Spectra S2 Plus Pumps

So, what are the differences between a Spectra S1 vs. an S2? The S2 Plus is also a hospital-strength double electric breast pump that comes with multiple settings and backflow protection. The difference between the S1 and S2 is that the S2 is a bit smaller and lighter, and it does not have a rechargeable battery, like the S1 does.

Spectra S9 Pumps

This is a sleek, little pump that was designed to be portable and discreet. It can fit right in your pocket or purse or even in the palm of your hand. The S9 is similar to other pumps in that it’s a strong and quiet double pump with backflow protection for added safety. And it does come with a rechargeable battery for added convenience. But the S9’s battery lasts about half as long as the S1 rechargeable battery. Compared to the S2 and S1, the S9’s sessions are usually a bit longer. It doesn’t have the hospital-grade strength of the other two breast pumps, and the S9 pump’s cycle speed cannot be adjusted separately. But the S9’s strength is very adequate.
