Our Leapster is never "out of order".
Between being able to charge the battery pack with the charger or plugging your Leapster directly with the cord (that comes with the charger), there are no disappointments when your child wants to use his/her Leapster.
This charger is wonderful. I charged my son's Explorer before we took a 12 hour road trip to Florida. I didn't have to charge it again the entire time we were there...we're back now and I still haven't charged it. Sooo much better than buying batteries all the time.
It's a little pricey but worth every penny,great that the ac adapter is usable for the console itself,she can play and plug it in the truck/home and just play w/o wasting the charged battery,when we're out for a long drive she doesn't ask to watch a movie coz all she want's is to play with her explorer.
This is a life saver. My son plays for a couple days with out charging. I save tons of money on batteries. It is well worth the price.
Started using the recharger almost immediately, the cost of using replaceable far outweighs the cost of the recharger. It’s a worthwhile investment in the long run, plus when the units not in use just drop it in the charger and it’s ready to go when the child is. One point I’d like to make here, the batteries used along with the recharger are Ni-Cads. These types of batteries tend to develop a recharge memory. In other words if the charge is only half gone it will only charge half way. Seems simple, but as time goes on and the battery is full depleted it will only charge half way. So to remedy this, it’s a good idea to full discharge the batteries every few months so the memory doesn’t develop and your Ni Cads will last twice as long. I know this from having worked in the field for over 30 yrs. HAPPY LEAP FROGGING
This should be included w/the leapster, at the very least the box shouuld tell you you need it unless you want to spend a lot of $$$ on AA batteries.
We initially thought we'd just use our rechargeable batteries but after they were dying very quickly and having to deal w/ unscrewing the base every time just to get to them, we decided to get this. It has been awesome. We've now had it and the game system for a yr now and love it. My 4 yr old plays it ALL the time. She gets a very long time out of this and it only takes 3ish hours to charge. I can't say enough about this charging station. Love it!
This has worked well. When the batteries ran out, I put this in and my granddaughter continued playing with her Explorer. Also, after she has used it for a while, I set the Explorer on the charger and leave it until light goes out, and is ready for use again. If my grandson's Explorer runs out of batteries, I'm just going to plug it to the outlet with the cord of the charger, and not put any new batteries in.
This thing is a lifesaver! Yes, it's not the cheapest, but it's worth it when you think about the fact that you don't have to change batteries all the time (I hate opening the battery compartment!) You can use the battery compartment it came with and 4 AA's for when you're charging the recharger battery pack. The Explorer is never "out of commission"! I've charged it twice since my son got his on Dec. 17th, the last time just this past weekend. It also comes with the AC adapter of course, and when you factor in that that's about $10+ retail, paying $24 for the battery pack and base doesn't seem so bad. Plus the base (without AC adapter) can be used as a stand for the Explorer when your child is looking at videos!
The recharger itself really isn't educational but the Explorer is wonderful and I'm so glad to have the recharger. It takes a few hours to get a full charge but my kids love their explorers. They are wonderful for long drives. Now my daughter has the camera attachment we are recharging hers even more often. Great addition to our explorer collection.
Keeps everything working and playing longer. The games are always ready to go .
Very easy to set up, worked very good, charged leap frog just as promised.
I think this was a GREAT purchase when buying our Leapster Explorer. My kids TEAR through the battery on this and you can use the charging station to charge BUT if your child wants to continue playing you can plug the ac adapter right into the bottom of the explorer with the battery pack in and it will charge while playing! :) Lifesaver!!
Unless you work for Energizer then this is a must! It is easy to operate and makes it easy for your child to be responsible for their toy. It comes with the power adapter so that you can use it easily when you are on trips too. Just pack the cradle and you are off.
We went through so many batteries before we got this. I can't say enough. Buy it!!!
Perfect! The charge lasts for days. It's so much better than having to purchase new batteries all the time. Worth the money......buy it, you won't regret it!
This charger is a must if you have an explorer. It charges in just a few hours and last a really long time!
I think this recharger should save us time. Replacing the batteries in the Explorer all the time would probably be pretty annoying. The recharger is easy to use. Just slide the game system on and it charges up pretty quickly.
This toy is too expensive for what it can do and does not have enough games to play.
When delivered it would not work because it came with the wrong cord. I was able to exchange it without issue at my local Walmart. Now it works great and a charge lasts several hours.
helps reduce battery costs
