2nd hand Spectra, get a portable one or handsfree?

Contemplating whether to get a 2nd hand Spectra S1 but buy new accessories (is it cheaper that way?), get a portable one or handsfree. Help! First time breastfeeding mum and I know nuts! If I want to buy the 2nd hand Spectra S1, just the motor & charger, where can I buy the accesories? I am really a noob. Appreciate if you have any link. Also how to know what size flange to use? 🙏

I have both Spectra S1 and S9 but I only got the S9 when I was gg back to work. Here’s the link of spectra accessories: https://shopee.sg/product/8051258/851344280?smtt=0.126478160-1624620142.9 As for flange size, I’m using 28mm as when I was in the hospital I used their pump and the lactation nurse measured me gave me the 24mm but it was too small for me that it hurts my nipples.

I'm actually looking for a more portable one. Heard that S1 is quite heavy but I'm using for home use only but then my baby will always wake up or cry whenever I pump. So yes contemplating whether to get which one. Currently using Real Bubee with the standard 24mm. No pain so guess it's my size.

You can buy spectra s1 manufactured in Korea which is much cheaper. I bought mine around $145 from shopee.
