Default Picked up drumming again - get an acoustic or electric kit?

Hello, sorry if this has been posted before.

I used to play drums about 5 years ago, self taught. I have recently picked up the sticks again but this time I am having lessons because I want to learn the right techniques to help me become a better player etc.

My question is- Do I get an electric or acoustic kit? I'd only be able to get about an hour a week practicing in with the acoustic because of noise and neighbors. But with an electric I can practice as much as I want!

I just don't want it to hinder my acoustic playing if I get an electric drum kit. I've heard that things like the hi hat cymbal techniques aren't as accurate as on an acoustic?

What would you do?

They are different for sure but 1 session per week practice is never going to get you far so I don't think you have much choice.

The more you spend on an ekit the closer it mimics an acoustic kit.

So spend lots of money and you'll be fine!

An ekit if you want to be able to spend the time playing.

When I went to an e kit, it expanded my practice hours 10X and I doubt that it did anything seriously negative.
