    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.

    Necessary

    Charges the LeapReader fairly quickly and has a long cord.

    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.

    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.!

    Excellent

    Wow! Shipped in two days ! Fits both of my granddaughter 's Leapfrog I pad without any problems. Works like a charm.

    Love it.

    This is perfect. Just what we needed.

    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.

    Great value

    My grandchildren bring over their Ultra's when they visit over night. I wanted an extra charger for my house. I checked a few stores that sold the product and couldn't find one that was for the LeapPad Ultra. Even went online to the company. No luck. Went to Radio Shack and they wanted 40.00 for a 2 pc. set that would work. Finally I happened upon them at Walmart.com and the price was about 10.00. Can't beat that price. Good to know if they ever lose one.

    does the job

    the plug does what i wanted it to do. my only suggestion would be to combine a car plug with a wall plug so you get both in one device. my other suggestion to the company would be to put a rechargable system in the leep pads rather than make them run on regular batteries. you know how many battaries i have to recycle? it's ridiculous! and many of the batteries are only half empty, but can not be used for the leep pad for some reason. it takes up so much juice! make them recharge like a phone or tablet, and you'd be golden! but in regards to the plug. yes. it does the job. the down side is, you are then tethered to the wall.

    Great idea but kinda scary

    Bought this for my 3 year old to plug her Leapster2 in to save on batteries. Most the time I do not remove the batteries from the unit because if I do, the power cuts on and off each time she moves the unit. I have found that if it is plugged in for any amount of time the unit gets extremely hot. To hot to handle with bare hands! She likes to play her game before bed and I have to make sure to unplug the unit each night because I worry about it causing a fire! Not impressed and for the price I could have bought a second set of rechargable batteries. If you buy this PLEASE be very careful with it!
