Millions of mothers have chosen the Mini Electric for their occasional pumping needs. It is one of the most established and best-selling electric pumps in Medela's product portfolio.
The Mini Electric can be easily operated by one hand, and runs on mains supply or battery. A full range of vacuum options can be selected by switching one controller. The pump has four parts, so assembly and cleaning take only a few minutes.
The lightweight and compact design of the Mini Electric breastfeeding pump means mothers can pump comfortably and quickly at home or on the go.
This tiny breast pump from Medela is designed to offer comfort when you're expressing breast milk. Due to its lightweight, compact size it's ideal for when you're out and about.
Handheld, it is easy to assemble, use and clean and can be operated with one hand. With a polypropylene bottle, it is safe to store breast milk and the vacuum has adjustable levels.
Includes: breastshield, bottle (150ml), bottle stand and mains adapter (can also be powered with batteries).
Compact, tubeless handheld electric breast pump
If you are using a manual breast pump then the Mini Electric is a good step up if you need a pump for occasional use but find that using a manual breast pump is time-consuming and tiring. The Mini Electric is one of the smallest, portable, but also basic electric pumps in the Medela range for occasional use.
The motor in the Medela Mini Electric is located on top of the breast shield, which makes the pump very compact and easy to operate with one hand. The suction speed can be controlled with a dial at the side of the motor.
Only five parts
The Mini Electric breast pump is made up of only five parts, so cleaning and assembly only takes a couple of minutes.
Another benefit of the motor unit located on top of the breast shield is that there are no tubes: expressed milk flows directly into the bottle.
Review of Amazon
As far as I'm concerned this is the most compact, reliable and simple breast pump out there because it is battery operated, small and functional. I already had a big pump but bought this instead because I can easily travel with it; I don't plug it in, I just use batteries to operate: easy and simple. I suppose if you're a mom who exclusively pumps, you may find the bottle small but I only use it for one bottle a day so perfect for me.

Bought this pump for my wife as the pump she used for our first baby packed in. This is a brilliant simple little pump with very few parts to it. It only has 2 settings and an on off switch but what more does it need? My only criticism would be it is very loud but I really don't see that as an issue as it's primary function is to extract milk which it does very effectively.
