I really like the portability and it works just as well as a double unit that I tried a few times. It is a little noisier but I don't find it that bothersome. The suction will not work if you do not get the motor attached well. You will know because the diaphragm won't move. I think that's where most of the “no suction” reviews stem from. Could also be poor flange fit. So user error may play a big part in whether or not this works for you.

Portable but lacking features
I have used the Evenflo Advance Single Electic Breast Pump several times since receiving it. Bottom line: I do recommend it, but for limited use only.
The best feature of this pump is the portability. The pump can be powered using the AC adapter (included) or with 3 AA batteries (not included). The ability to use battery power makes this pump very portable. It can be used during power outages, on camping trips, in the car, or anywhere that an electrical outlet is not available. I also love that the batteries are just regular AA instead of having an internal rechargeable system. This adds to the convenience. I tested the strength of the suction using both AC and batteries and found that the AC power made the suction only slightly more effective,
There are some drawbacks to this pump, however. First, there is no ability to change the suction cycle speed. The power of the suction itself can be changed to make the suction stronger or weaker, but the speed of the suction cannot be change. This is a problem for stimulating milk let-down, which generally requires a faster suction speed. In fact, the manual recommends manually stimulate let-down through massage and warm compresses. This is very inconvenient.
Second, I tried using the pump on one side while nursing my baby on the other. This eliminates the need to manually stimulate let-down because baby will do that. The pump is loud and ended up distracting my baby from nursing. I definitely wouldn't use this pump while trying to put baby to sleep because it is too noisy.
My pump came with a 24.5mm (size small) flange insert. This insert did not work for me, and I ended up using just the bare flange for pumping, which worked fine. There are, however, other flange sizes available for those that want to use an insert but need a size not included with the pump.
The pump is easy to assemble, use, and clean.
As someone who has had three kids and used several different brands of breast pumps over the years, I would recommend this pump be used as a backup pump only. While it is very portable, the lack of variation in the suction cycling speed makes it very inconvenient for frequent use.
No suction with cord or batteries
Bought this pump thinking it would be perfect for on the go because it uses batteries as well as cord for home. Yea well today I brought baby home and plugged it in no suction...thought ok I'll just toss batteries in, yea still no suction, not a sound anything...now here it is 12am engorged with a 2 day old baby who eats very little each feeding and no pump!! Over 65$ wasted because I bought multiple boxes of milk storage bags as well as this nonworking pump!!!
New evenflo pumps are trash!
I have this coupled with the manual pump. All have lost suction and is now junk. The one im using now is from 5 years ago from my first born and the cord is broken, i now use batteries in them instead and it works fine!!!Dont buy the new evenflo. Get something else or you will keep wasting money!!!
DO NOT PURCHACE!!!!!!
Wife and I bought this because we had a couple of other evenflo pumps from our first child and they worked great. Now they have this new ""advanced"" system and it is a complete fail. Have had it for only a week and it no longer provides adequate suction.
Honestly I do not recommend to any breast feeding mom. It lowered my milk supply because of the suction. The suction on it is awful it worked for a few days and started losing the suction you can tell when you put it on your breast that it doesn't attach great. Honestly it's cheap but not worth it wouldn't recommend it at all.
Absolute nightmare, do not get this breast pump as it doesn't WORK!!! Im absolutely furious as my 5 day old baby doesn't get enough milk because this pump won't suck, ZERO SUCTION. I've only used it for 3 days and it stopped working completely. $45 down the drain STRESS. Great deal.
No suction, no battery function
purchased two of these, one never worked the others battery capability stopped working on the third day. Wish I would have gotten a different pump.
I should have looked up the reviews first
This pump is horrible. Some days I can use it, others I can and I have been using it for less than a month. It still works but the suction is super weak. This is a waste of money
It does basically nothing been pumping for an hour not even close to half way needed a pump as I start school tomorrow and should have spent the extra Money I'm gonna throw this at the wall
