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.

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!

2 different ones didn't work!

Comments about LeapFrog AC Adapter for LeapReader and LeapPad Ultra:
This product did not work without batteries. I tried 2 different ones and neither one would work without batteries and the leapfrog II drains a lot of battery juice. The purpose of the AC adapter should be to allow use of the device while plugged in so you don't have to go through numerous batteries so often. Both adapters that I tried failed to do this. Did I just get 2 broken adapters or all they all like this?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this adapter for my 2 year old daughter as we go through way way to many batteries and I was not informed that when getting the adapter you just buy the charge packs , but all in all its a good item
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Not so good product`
I left the Leapster plug up all day and when removed from the adapter it was not charged had to leave it plugged to the adapter to stay charged.

This was purchased to accompany gift of LeapPad2 I gave to my grandson. I'm hoping it is working.
Must be replaced every 9 months.
I've had two of these in the last two years. The original pooped out around 9 months, and now the replacement has died as well. I'm assuming I'll need to keep buying these bulky annoying things for the rest of the life of my leapsters. Frustrating.
I will be returning this ...
I will be returning this product as it is not what I wanted./needed. I needed a charger (like what we use for our phones). That is what I explained to the customer service rep. I don't think an adapter is proper for a leapster as why have a child's toy tied to an electrical outlet? We have been replacing 4 AA batteries constantly & when you are trying to keep two leapsterGSes going, that can get expensive.

does the job
from West Bend, Wi
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.
