  • A. Has to stay plugged in. It does not recharge the batteries. Just allows you to run the LeapPad from outlet power instead of battery power.

  • A. The system uses batteries and all this product does it helps reserve the battery life. You have to use this while plugged into the wall. The product does not charge up. I like it and think that it is worth it.

  • A. There is no internal battery for the leappad, you need batteries or the a/c adapter...and most kids don't sit in one spot long enough to be worth the a/c adapter in my opinon. I highly suggest investing in rechargeable batteries, any name brand, stay away from generics. Get 2 sets per the number of leappads you own and a charger for the batteries and you will be set! You will always have a set in the system and one ready to go, b/c let me tell you, this weekend my girls played on theirs and I"m so happy I have 4 sets of AAs, that is all I did this weekend, take 1 set out and put another set in. They played constantly. ;)

  • A. http://www.walmart.com/ip/LeapFrog-AC-Adapter-LeapPad-Leapster-Explorer-Leapster-2/5412193 Yes, this AC adapter allows you to power your LeapFrog® learning game system directly from an AC outlet. Please note that the adapter is only designed to power your system as your child plays—it does not recharge batteries or charge your system for play away from the outlet.

Leapster AC Adapter

I was a little skeptical in buying this product after I read some of the reviews saying it only worked with batteries still in the game, but I figured even if it used some battery power it would be better than using full battery power. But when I got the adapter I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it worked perfectly fine without batteries being in the system. Maybe the other people made some kind of mistake along the way; I don't know. But this product has been very useful as my son plays his Didj literally 24 hours a day and he was beginning to put wear and tear on even the rechargeable batteries. So this definately takes a huge burden off and I would recommend it to everyone that has a leapster gaming system. It's definately a money saver!!!

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.

Confused? A charging device or just a power source

by Wondermomof2boys

I am very confused. I thought this was a charging device but it does not charge the LeapPad or Explorer and I have left it plugged in overnight. If its meant to merely a power source, what child is going to sit connected to a wall outlet to play the game. The reason we bought the gaming devices is for mobility, so that they could play them on the go. In the end, I am not too happy with the devices huge drain on batteries and impossible means to recharge. If your child will sit near a power source all the time to use it, then this adapter is good for you otherwise, its of very limited use.

My daughter loves playing with her Leapster. I was frequently replacing the batteries. I came across this AC-Adapter when I was looking to purchase a game. I'm 100% satisfied with this product. No more batteries. Yay!!!!!!!! Overall, it's a great deal for your money.

When I brought this product I thought I made a mistake, because it does not say that it works with Leapfrog click smart, my first computer. Leapfrog actually sells an adapter that said that. To my suprise it works with it and all other leapfrog products.

After a weekend of owning the Leapster Explorer we knew the AC adapter is a must. You will save a lot of money on batteries with this adapter. Don't have a second thought about it, get one.

I love having the power adapter. It does not charge the batteries, just allows you to save battery life by using the adapter. Before we bought this I was having to put 4 AA batteries in the LeapPad2 everyday. That can become expensive very quickly.
