Looking for a manual breast pump

I have a medela pump in style advanced, but with DS there were times that I forgot parts to the pump when I went to work. I would like to get a manual that I could just leave in my classroom for times when this happens. (I know I sound crazy that this happens, but pregnancy brain seems to get worse after baby comes for me.)  Does anyone have a recommendation for a manual pump?  I tried leaving a set of parts at work, but that didn't always work out for me.  I was incredibly absent minded when after ds.

    I have the Medela Harmony and it works great. DD refused to take a bottle, so I didn't use it very often, but it was quick and easy to use. It will also work with the flanges and things that you already have for the PISA.

    I asked my nurse for one when I had DS.  So I got whatever the hospital had.  Nothing fancy, but it did the job.

    I bought an evenflow single breast electric pump from Walmart , while I was waiting for my Medela to arrive from the insurance agency. I actually prefer the evenflow for when I am out and about or traveling because you can use 3 AA batteries with it and it is small and compact- so I can stick it in my diaper bag.

    Forgot to mention-the Medela bottles are compatible with the evenflow as well.
