Ignores all refund requests
DO NOT BUY FROM HERE! After sales communication completely ignored. Seems like their office is actually in Singapore and they dropship their items. No Aussie support at all. 30 day return policy, but all requests to return are ignored.

Not exactly hands free or convenient
The pump is not exactly hands fee as you still need to help the milk flow. Suction is not strong.
When you want to return the product, they are very unwilling to help.

Stay away if you want longevity from the product.
Loved the spectra for my first baby. Easy to use, portable, quiet, originally had good battery life. I used the pump for six months, and thought I had made a good investment as the pump cost $200 in 2017 and I planned on having more children. Fast forward to 2020, pulled the pump out of storage to use with my second baby, it worked once and the battery died. Battery cannot be replaced, and the pump does not work even when plugged in. Spectra advised there are no replacement batteries or servicing available so I essentially have to throw my pump...in the bin. Extremely disappointed. Do not buy if you plan on using the pump for a few years as the lithium battery doesn’t last. The medela swing takes triple A batteries and is portable, I should have gone with that instead.

My breast friend!
This tiny, portable pump is surprisingly powerful. I am able to pump a full feed for my twins in 8 minutes on the Spectra 9. The battery life is quite good. I use it twice daily and it only requires a charge once a week. It is easy to pack up and pop in the pram, also great to keep by the bedside for midnight pumps. Highly recommended to any breastfeeding/expressing mum.

Outstanding portable pump
I bought this pump as a portable option to use for travel (alongside my Spectra S1 as my main pump). I was very happy this pump.
- Very quiet (not inaudible, but very decent!)
- Drew almost as much, if not as much, milk as my main Spectra pump. In fact, it drew almost as much milk as the big chunky pumps in the hospital.
- Roughly the size of a can of soft drink, and small enough that I could fit in a medium sized handbag or in the nappy bag
I liked that it was closed system, making it more hygienic because the milk can’...t enter the tubing or the pump - only the flanges. Would definitely recommend this one as a great travel/portable option alongside a primary pump, or as a primary pump for occasional pumpers (eg those expressing at work).

Good pump, but don't expect S1/S2 level performance
I bought this for portability after using the S2. I wanted to be able to pump in the car without worrying about a big bulky thing and plugs, etc. I know it's not hospital grade but I saw it went to almost as much suction power as the S2 (level 10 vs 12). I figured that will do, but I only ended up getting half the milk I normally get with the S2, while using the same accessories.
I meanwhile upgraded to the S1 and I'm likely to carry that around in the car.
Don't get me wrong, I think it's a good pump, the problem is that I'm used to the max...

Not very comfortable. Suction hurts
I love the fact this pump is portable and dosnt need to be plugged in.
But if had it with 2 babies now and although I only pump occasionally the suction hurts my nipples.
I have it on level 3 and after 5mins my nipples are sore and if I turn it down to level 2 the suction is too fast and can hardly feel any suction.
I never seem to be able to pump a great deal with it. I was going to purchase the breast massager inserts spectra sell but after reading reviews on them leaking milk I don’t want that.
The medela pumps are much more comfortable.
Battery life is good.

The working mum pump
Super comfortable and easy to use pump. I purchased this due to going back to work and having to pump twice throughout the day. It was the best baby purchase I made, people didn't know I was even carrying in a breast pump due to how small and portable it is but don't be fooled although it's small it has some power. I would easily get 180mls or more each day. It also has a great battery life so never had to stress about it running out of charge on me. Would highly recommend.

perfect for discrete pumping
i love my spectra9+ pump, so portable and discreet (i’ve even used it while watching a movie at the cinemas). easy to use and although not hospital grade it does the job perfectly fine. love the fact that it has an inbuilt battery, so combined with a pumping bra i’m able to move around and get things done in the house without being confined to one spot

I purchased this second hand prior to baby being born. I was repeatedly recommended to get a spectra pump as they were hospital grade and seemed superior to most others on the market.
As I was not returning to work immediately I didn’t need to express on a schedule so this was the perfect pump for establishing supply and pumping some extra to stash in the freezer.
It’s been comfortable to use, even when I haven’t been able to tolerate breastfeeding I’ve been able to pump with the Spectra S9+, with the adjustable suction and massage mode it ha...

Postage is very quick too.

Essential item for working mum who wants to breastfeed
I bought this machine just before bub was born after reading many positive reviews online and it didn't disappoint me. Being rechargeable, lightweight and compact, it is great to use either at home or bring with you to work. The suction power is pretty good, but not as strong as the S1 or S2 breast pump. It's a double pump however I only use it on one breast at a time as I find it's very hard to hold 2 bottles at once. The fact that this is a closed system makes it far more superior than other pumps on the market as the milk will not enter the ...machine and hence it's free from moulds. I went back to work when bub was 6 months and started exclusive pumping since. 3 times a day and it helps keep my milk supply stable. I've used this pump for almost 1.5 years with my first and now starting the journey again with my second and I'm very happy with it.

Does a great job
I'd never used a breast pump before but my research said this one was great, and I wasn't disappointed. It is comfortable and I can do a full pump in about 8 mins. It's lightweight and portable, with good battery life. I use it daily and would recommend it to anyone.

Easy portable reliable
I got this just before bubs was born and it has been so easy to use and quick. Even now that I'm at work it's so easy and I can't say enough

Portable and easy breastpump
I was exclusively breast pumping for the first 6 weeks of my babies life. I initially rented a hospital grade pump to establish supply and had already brought the spectra 9 not anticipating how hard breastfeeding and expressing would be. I was very reluctant to use it thinking it wouldn’t be enough to keep my supply up however I was pleasantly surprised! I am now only expressing once a day as I can now breastfeed however I was still managing to get the same output as the hospital grade one. One thing that I can’t stress enough is making sure you get the correct size for your nipples

Would highly recommend this breast pump
We preemptively purchased this breast pump before the birth of our first, it come highly recommended from other new mums. It has so far been valuable for the wife, it only takes a min or two to begin pumping milk, she finds it comfortable for the job at hand. We attended a wedding on the weekend and the ability to carry this in the baby carry bag and express during the day was something made possible by the portability of the pump, as well as that we already had expressed bottled milk for the grand parents to feed with while we enjoyed our ti...me at the wedding. I was happy with the price we paid as we were able to purchase the unit for a bit cheaper through groupon ($160), however we would have paid full price for the unit as we should get several years out of the unit as our family grows.

This pump is so comfortable & did not cause any pain on the breast. The pump is so easy to charge and very easy to use. It helped me pump out a lot of milk and kept the flow going.

Perfect for my lifestyle
If you are the type of person who doesnt want to stay in one place then this is the breast pump for you. I always want my breast pump which is portable and because of goodfeedbacks i bought this one online. It is a closed system pump so i will not worry of molds coming inside the pump. It has a let down mode (massage) which i used for 2mins before pumping and it helped me pump more milk. The machine’s suction power is only at level 6 but its good enough for me to pump milk. I used it every 3-4hours and at the end of the day i only have one batt...ery left so i always charge it everyday. Its very easy to clean and it includes extra bottle for feeding. Though, i dont like the teat of the bottle included thats why i didnt use it. The reason i gave it a 4star because its a bit expensive compared to other portable breastpump in the market. Overall, it is a good breastpump!

I've purchased this pump after reading all positive reviews, and I must say it has proved to be an amazing product! It's efficient yet gentle (and that is quite important if you had to deal with sore nipples). It helped me to establish a good milk supply in early days, and later it helped me to resolve blocked ducts on a couple occasions. I am currently using it on and off and very happy with the performance. Also this pump is light, compact and not noisy comparing to the other pumps on the market. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend.
Questions & Answers
My spectra 9plus I have been using for 1 month , suddenly unable to charge then , and it turn off , What will I Do ? Please reply thanks
I've managed to dissassembe one and found that the battery had bloated and is no longer usable. Needs new battery
Hi, I was just wondering at how the warranty works if purchasing before bubs birth - I am looking at buying one next week which will be about 3 months before I will start to use it?
As far as I know, the warranty starts when you buy it.
My Spectra s9 plus will auto off after 15 mins. Batt shows 2 bar. When on again, can only pump for few seconds. After few hours, able to pump again for 15 mins. And start the same issue. Any idea what went wrong?
Battery is stuffed
- The Spectra 9 Plus Portable Double Electric Breast Pump has an inbuilt battery and can be mains-powered, giving you flexibility in where you can pump.
- It lets you easily adjust the suction strength (up to 300mmHg) and cycle speed together, meaning the speed slows as you increase.
- The breast pump has a complete double kit - so you can pump both breasts simultaneously and save time. Double pumping also has the added benefit of helping support milk supply by increasing your prolactin (the milk producing hormone) levels.
- A letdown mode that simulates the way a baby suckles helps speed the start of milkflow, making for efficient expressing.
- The pump has an LCD display that lets you see where you are with vacuum and cycle settings. A timer on the device also helps you keep track of how long you’ve been expressing.
- It also has a battery indicator that lets you know how much charge you have left, so you can easily see and prepare for leaving home.
- It’s all in the name - this breast pump is portable, lightweight (400g), and slimlined. You can easily pop it into a nappy bag or handbag and discreetly carry it around.
- This is a closed system machine, providing the optimal safety and hygiene for pumping milk.
Points of praise:
- Reviewers loved how effective this breast pump was in pumping, noting that they expressed large quantities of milk in a short amount of time.
- They also appreciated how lightweight and slimline it was, saying that this portability made it easy to pack and gave reviewers freedom to express themselves wherever they wanted.
- Most reviewers found that the breast pump felt comfortable on their breasts and was painless to use.
- The long battery life and swift recharge time was also praised by reviewers.
