January 31, 2022

With so many rechargeable pumps to choose from, it can be hard to know which ones are best. While it is true the breast pump that is right for you depends on your situation, there are some that standout from the crowd. That’s why we rounded up the top rechargeable battery pumps we carry based on some of the most important features moms are asking for.

Most Adjustable Breast Pump

It’s important to be able to closely mimic the patterns of your breastfeeding baby to optimize milk output and have the most productive pumping sessions. Having as many adjustable settings as possible will help you achieve that.

Cimilre S6+

Top features:

  • Adjustable massage and expression modes
  • Night light
  • Super quiet

Why we love it:

The Cimilre S6+ offers adjustable speed and suction for both massage (let down) and expression modes. It is a standout among breast pumps for that feature alone! This allows you to customize your breast pump to get as close to your baby’s nursing pattern as possible. It is also comfortable, with contoured flanges and quiet enough to be used virtually undetected while on the phone. If you need a different flange size than what it comes with, Cimilre will provide you one free set. Bonus: it can also be personalized with a unique skin design!

Additional specs:

  • Weight | 1.9 lbs
  • Display | Backlit LCD screen
  • Included | Two flange sizes (24mm and 28mm), plus Cimilre offers a free set if a different flange size is needed

Smallest Breast Pump

Portability and convenience are crucial for many moms. If you are pumping when you are out and about with your baby, it’s important to have a pump that is small enough to throw in the diaper bag, your handbag, or coat pocket.

Cimilre P1

Top features:

  • Ultra-lightweight
  • Fits in the palm of the hand
  • Intuitive touch controls with locking feature

Why we love it:

Even though this is one of the smallest pumps available, the Cimilre P1 still packs more than enough power to be your everyday pump. It’s small enough to put in your sweatshirt pocket and so quiet it can barely be heard. It has a sleek, minimalist design with intuitive touch controls. Just as with all Cimilre pumps, if you need a different flange size than it comes with, Cimilre will provide you one free set. It can be personalized with a unique skin design, too.

Additional specs:

  • Weight | 0.55 lbs
  • Display | Backlit LCD touchscreen
  • Included | Two flange sizes (24mm and 28mm), plus Cimilre offers a free set if a different flange size is needed

 

Dual Motor Breast Pump

Sometimes one breast requires a different suction setting. Most pumps do not allow you to change the suction strength for both sides, but a dual motor pump gives you the flexibility to adjust the suction settings on each side independently to suit your body’s needs.

Cimilre S5+

Top features:

  • Dual motor
  • Ultra-lightweight
  • Pause and resume sessions

Why we love it:

Bodies are not symmetrical, and neither is milk production. The Cimilre S5+ pump allows you to adjust suction based on the needs of each individual breast without sacrificing suction strength. You can pause sessions on one side or the other, adjust suction for each side, or sync both sides to the same suction strength. It’s also surprisingly small and quiet for a dual motor pump. As a bonus, if you need a different flange size than it comes with, Cimilre will provide you one free set. It can also be personalized to you with a stylish skin design.

Additional specs:

  • Weight | 0.9 lbs
  • Display | Backlit LCD screen
  • Included | Two flange sizes (24mm and 28mm), plus Cimilre offers a free set if a different flange size is needed

Wearable Pumps

Looking for even more portability? A wearable pump may be a great option for you! While they tend to be more expensive, they offer a convenience factor that is loved by many. Learn more about the Best Wearable Pumps and which one might fit your needs.

AA Battery Operated Breast Pumps

There may be instances where a AA battery operated pump may be a good option for you. Different from rechargeable pumps with internal batteries, AA battery operated pumps give you the ability to swap out the batteries when needed. This could be particularly important if you won’t have access to an area to charge or tend to lose power frequently. If this sounds like the best option for you, consider the Lansinoh SmartPump 2.0 or the Medela PIS with Maxflow.
