A super-detailed comparative review of the Barrick S1 and Cimilre F1 breast pumps, telling you what the differences are between them

LLooking back, it has been more than five months since my life as a dairy cow. I don’t know how I spent it. I can only say that breastfeeding can be regarded as a difficult road.

At the beginning, when the confinement center couldn’t handle the milk, I really couldn’t sleep. I had to express the milk every two or three hours, otherwise I would be woken up by bloating or cold by spilled milk. And it takes a few and a half hours to express milk every time, and it feels like the whole day just disappears silently. I talked to a friend before, and he told me that milking is like this.

I found it very troublesome to feed at the beginning, and felt reluctant when I wanted to withdraw milk. Now I am in the state of milk withdrawal. In my heyday, I could express 900 milk a day. Once I decided to withdraw milk, I quickly reduced milk. Yeah, I doubt that my willpower can control the amount of milk. Now it’s only about 500 a day. I should be able to slowly withdraw it when the goal is six months old!

The current task of breastfeeding is about to be completed. I want to share my most frequently asked questions. I don’t feel like writing this article quickly. My daily private messages will really go back and forth, because everyone is the most I love to ask me Berrick 9s (go to buy) / Cimilre F1 hands-free (go to buy) how do you feel when using these two devices!

First of all, why do I have these two? Hank bought them for me when I was in the maternity center, because the only thing they offered was the violence that Berrick used generations ago. The milking machine of the past was not portable, it was a super large milking machine. Besides the price must be over ten thousand, the pump was also extremely powerful. I am a milk abuse person, violent suction did not adjust really will make me cry, there are quite many records of strawberry milk, the key is equipped with only one, each time squeezing one side, the other side is very annoying, so I directly bought a 9s.

Later, I saw that the accessories of Berek 9s/Cimilre F1 could be shared, so I bought the hand-held accessories of F1 again. Then, many people asked me how F1 works and what is the difference between F1 and 9s? Because I wanted to know too much, I bought F1 again. Hence today’s Berrick 9s/Cimilre F1 handheld review.

Anyway, both of these are portable. People will always compare the Berrick 9s/Cimilre F1 because they are so similar. I think the biggest difference is the way the power is powered. In addition, Cimilre used to be a brand owned by Berik, mainly producing medical grade milkers. Until Berik and Cimilre were officially separated, and because the accessories of the two can be exchanged, people liked to compare them, so we will make a comparison next.

The Cimilre F1’s console is slightly smaller, just about the size of a hand. You can observe the main part of the host, there is a charging port; At the other end is an intake hole for the tube, which can be adjusted into one or two holes.

The biggest advantage of the Cimilre F1 is that it uses a lithium-ion battery that can be stored and used wirelessly, like a mobile phone, for an hour and a half on a full charge. Every time I turn on the machine, it will shut down after half an hour, so I squeeze for about half an hour every time.

And then two of the same breast/massage two modes, are also 10, 5, absorb the force with the size of the voice I also feel similar, anyway, I am used to 10, I love milk ah, ha ha ha ha! At first, use massage mode to press for five minutes, and then drive again to 10 segments.

Berek 9s mainframe is a little larger, just mentioned is the power supply is different. The 9s is powered by a regular rectifier, four No. 3 batteries, and microusb (top right, left). In short, it can also be used on the go. Just add in the weight of the battery or mobile power supply, and you’re not as good as the Cimilre F1!

After the boot of the interface with F1 is very similar, coincidentally are blue bottom, and then the key pattern is concave, pretty easy to card milk.

Here comes the weight of the main engine that everyone cares about. Because of the lithium battery, the main engine itself is Cimilre F1 heavier than Berrick 9s.

However, to use Berek 9s outside, it needs to add four No.3 batteries or mobile power supply. The weight of the battery alone is heavier than that of F1. Mobile power supply should only be heavier, But the difference is only 40g, so the difference is not big! But it’s easier to build in lithium batteries, just like charging your phone!

The next biggest difference should be the accessories. Cimilre F1 will be attached with a set of standard accessories and a set of free accessories, but a set means that it can only squeeze one side, so I will buy another set of good things in pairs!

After the accessories package is opened, there are probably these things, standard caliber horn cover, duck beak, stop valve, connecting hose, anyway, when the seller will mark quite clear! The part of the bottle can be converted into a milk bottle or milk storage bottle, that is, if you are too lazy to wash it, you can buy several groups of replacement, and then the accessories of Cimilre F1 are standard caliber, which can be universal with the standard caliber milk bottles of every company.

There is also a small difference in the stop valve. The Cimilre F1 has two ends of the same caliber, while the Berik has a wider end, but the Cimilre F1 has a wider and thinner end. So Cimilre F1’s stop valves can be shared with Berick’s fittings, but Berick’s stop valves cannot be shared with Cimilre F1’s.

Then the Cimilre F1 stop valve because of the sudden tapering relationship, it is easy to card milk and then the stop valve will become vacuum, and then it can not be sucked, it is necessary to dry and then clear, the people who have not used it should not understand it, it doesn’t matter, you will know after using it.

This is the Cimilre F1 hand-free accessory, I don’t know that this translucent thing with this background makes people blind, so I will take photos later when I have time, haha, haha, in short, it is so special, it is a device that can avoid hand-held breast pumping.

After opening, it can be found that it contains free loudspeaker cover (three parts), duck beak, connecting hose, and standard caliber bottle. In short, every time it is used, it is like a puzzle game combination. I think it is super troublesome.

This is a standard accessory. The biggest difference is that the Cimilre F1 bottle is of standard caliber, and the Berik accessory is of wide caliber, which cannot be shared with other brands. In short, I don’t know why it is so unique!

As for why the accessories of Berik are yellow, I think it is because I used ultraviolet light to disinfect them. Some of the plastics will become more and more yellow in the sun, and the pacifier will be more prone to calcification!

The actual boot takeover is like this, but I will pick up two pairs at a time! The running sound of both machines is quite low, because I turn it on to 10, so there is some noise. If I turn it on to a very weak number, it should be super silent. At least my husband and daughter will not wake up when I milk!

Then the free accessories can be plugged into the underwear to use, and there is a groove to card the underwire of the underwear, but not the ring can also be! At first I did not look carefully, want to say free accessories should be able to inhale on the milk, the result can not suck and keep falling down I was angry ah, the result is to match underwear, but this really can not suck very clean, because I love to use the hand to empty all the milk, so handheld accessories I really have no love ah! But this kind of thing is very subjective, and I think there are a lot of dairy cows who think highly of hand-held accessories.

I usually use standard accessories with my hand-free underwear, which is really addictive, because in addition to the hand-free underwear, the underwear pressure is pretty even, so it doesn’t leak milk and things like that!

This underwear was sent to me by a manufacturer when I was still in the month of imprisonment, and I enjoyed it very much, but the manufacturer disappeared and never contacted me. As a result, I couldn’t even get a connection to the product, so I couldn’t buy a second one.

The above sample photos thank our pregnant husband for providing the body, the baby has not been born and no bloated milk is also very hard! I don’t know if you can see it clearly, but I don’t know how to express it if you don’t know how to hold it.

Finally, by the way, Cimilre’s new S3 is also good now, you can dig here to find out.

Above, about to retire dairy cattle to share with you, I wish you a rich production of mothers, the baby head good strong ah! If you want to learn more about breast pump brands, you can check out this article below.
