Rated 4 out of 5 by carebear25 I use this everyday to save battery life,I would like to see the cord retract for easier storage and portability.
Rated 5 out of 5 by gandajgma Replaces battery use when plug is available.
At today's prices this will pay for itself in less than 2 months.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sweetpepp Great product, does what it was made to do.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BXShopHer Great solution!
Found that I was replacing LeapPad batteries almost daily, depending on my son's use! This adapter allows my son to play for extended time at home without having to worry about sucking up battery power!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by WMSorrell Works as DESIGNED... Please read before you order
For those of you who actually took the time to read the description of product, you already know this AC adapter is used instead of batteries, or while your batteries are charging (on a seperate charger). This AC adapter is not designed to be a battery charger of any kind.
Unfortunately the Leappad1 does not have a rechargable battery pack like the new one, but what can you do. My kids enjoy playing with it. I just made sure I bought some AA rechargable batteries a head of time, and I always have a fresh set ready to go, especially when on long car rides. Even then I can use the AC adapter, or even the car adapter option. If you are a parent like I am, and have kids who are constantly on their Leappads,
I highly recommend getting this adapter, or you may consider the adapter with the Duracell batteries as well. Either way it will save you some grumpy kids when the dreaded red screen of death pops up while your kids are feeding their pets or helping Eve and Wall-E dig for planets.
Rated 2 out of 5 by MsPicky123 Not so useful
The adapter will not stay connected to the game. It slides out the side of the LeapPad too easily. It might help if the cord was longer. If you have a kid that will sit still while they play this might be okay for you.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GaGirLnSC Save $ on batteries!
Great extra! If you have a Leapster Explorer for your child, you know it doesn't come with a charger. This one is definitely worth the small price! Hours of fun and not always spending money on batteries. A must have for my 4 year old!!!
Thanks to Walmart for great prices!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by hotcook A MUST!
never let the fun end because the batteries went dead! A must have!

We were going through batteries like crazy! The adapter is super easy for around the house use.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Motherof2beautifulgurls I thought that it charges the game but, it doesn't. Do they really think that a child will sit still and stay connected to a wall and play? Well, my kids surely don't. And I believe that other children won't nether.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Whitterbug It's okay but
I wish the cord was longer! I feel like my daughter has to stay buy the outlet to play so she perfers the batteries as do I. We have bought 2 sets of the batteries so we just have one always charged up for quick changes.

My grandsons were very excited to get their chargers because the batteries was not lasting long enough.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunshine1026 Well worth it!
This helps save money on having to purchase batteries all of the time. The Leap Pad uses 4 AA batteries and my daughter plays with it all of the time. Having the adapter helps reserve the battery usage and saves me money.
Rated 4 out of 5 by MommyTesters If You Read What It is Supposed To Do - It Does It
There are a lot of frustrated people on here saying that they were expecting this to charge their Leappad. They do not advertise this to be a charger for a rechargeable battery. This is advertised as an alternate power source. Having read the description I ordered it because I wanted to have an option on a long flight where we would have access to power and didn't want to eat batteries the whole time. It served its purpose.
Granted - I completely agree that I would not have released the Leappad without offering a rechargeable option (other than getting your own rechargeable batteries)
This product does have limited use...how many kids are going to sit near an outlet to play with their toy? However in certain circumstances like the one I mentioned which was a 16 hour flight I'm happy to spend the money to not be changing batteries mid flight.
Rated 3 out of 5 by zygos Cheappad: should not be battery operated
My daughter received a Leappad for Christmas from my sister, along with a small supply of batteries (which don't last very long). In the meantime, my sister ordered the AC Adapter so that we wouldn't have to keep purchasing and/or changing rechargeable batteries. How disappointing that when the AC Adapter arrived and plugged the unit in for a whole day thinking it was recharging, it actually didn't. It's not suppose to.
Had I known that this unit is only battery operated, I would have suggested that my sister purchased something else for my daughter. Now we are commited to buying and/or recharging batteries for the rest of Leappads life, or having my daughter use Leappad while it's connected to a power outlet.
Very inconvenient! I would not recommend Leappad for this reason.!
Rated 5 out of 5 by KESDADDY Excellent
The adaptor works wonderfully and we have almost stopped buying batteries for my daughters Leappad.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Green Not hapy with this product
I bought the AC adapter to use with my children's leapster explorer and leap pad thinking it actually recharged. Come to find out it only works while plugged into the wall. So much for making an adapter that does not charge so that it may be used battery free. You need to mention this in the product details so others are aware of its caveat. I plan on returning and getting my money back.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ladymoral2 Why would you make a charger for the leap pad that do not charge it? So you mean to tell me that the kids must sit by the wall to play there leap pad. That makes no since at all. Are you all going to come up with a battery charging back that can be used with the charger?
Rated 2 out of 5 by DentalMom AC adapter needs improvement.
This cord is a great idea, however it doesn't fit tightly in the connection. If my daughter moves at all the cord falls out. I contacted the company and told them the problem. I thought they had sent me the wrong one or it was defective. They were actually willing to send me a new adapter at no charge. The new one fits slightly better but not great. If she moves to much with this one the connection is lost and the tablet shuts off. Very disappointing. My child loves the tablet and uses it quite often which really eats up the batteries. I rates this a 2star because the adapter is a good idea, it sort of works and Leapfrog was easy to deal with and willing to help me as a customer. otherwise I would have given it a lower rating.
Rated 5 out of 5 by OreoGoddess24 Should come in the box...
Love it! REALLY saves on batteries! I wish they would have included this with the LeapPad though, especially for the price! Still glad I bought it though.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tamster5659 Better than running down batteries
Works well, bought as an additional gift for the LeapPad Explorer, saves on batteries.
Rated 5 out of 5 by HappySunshine Its good value for the money if you don't want to keep using/changing batteries too often (even if you use rechargeable batteries) since leap pad requires 4 AA batteries.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Fish Lep Pad AC Adapter
Love the new Leap Pad however, the AC ADapter which is a geat concept and almost necessary with any electronic device or toy . The one used for this Leap Pad has no small light or indicator light telling me if it's charging or is being charged or had charged. No directions either explaining how long the charge time is . You just plug it in and hope it works.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dirathbun Great when batteries are low
This works great when your child really wants to play their leappad but the batteries have run out. Saves money by not having to buy batteries all the time. Not convenient to be plugged in 100% of the time. Would be great if it also recharged the batteries at the same time.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lalaloopzy It beats having to keep on changing batteries.
Rated 4 out of 5 by lulu92 when i ordered this product i was under the assumption that it would charge the leapster 2. this is just an adapter and will keep the leapster alive while its plugged into the wall. i was a little disapointed but its better than nothing. i still save money on not buying batteries all the time, unless we travel with the leapster. other than that its a great product. i do recommend this.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Phildude Adapters work great
Bought two for a pair of LeapPad Explorers. They work great.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mommiebish Excellent to save money
We bought the charging station with the adapter, games, and a whole bunch of other stuff for christmas last year. My oldest now 4 still loves his games and plays them often. we charge it while he sleeps and the charge seems to last a long time. Unfortunately we lost the adapter and needed to buy a new one. No problems with it, at all.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveOfDrew Great Buy
This is so much easier than having to buy batteries or the expensive charger constantly. Safe for children 5 and up too.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TinaLovinWalmart Love this Product
Now my kids can play their Leapster all day. I love this charger. It is never in stock in the store.
