To those of you looking for a current review and to answer some questions, I wanted to make a few comments. First of all, as many other reviewers have mentioned in their five star ratings and to answer some of you that have left one or two star ratings, this is an AC Adapter, as mentioned in the product description and the box itself. This is not a charger, not a docking station. This is merely an electrical plug that works with the Leap Frog products. Whether you have rechargable batteries or not, this item is not intended to charge those. This is to be plugged in while using the unit, as you would a television. If you want a portable unit, put in the batteries. We use this ac adapter when we are at home, since most kids sit in one place while using these toys, it is no problem to plug it into the nearest outlet. We put in fresh batteries when we head to an airport or when we are in the car. That being said, the second issue, which actually made me wonder whether to order this or not, is whether it works for the LeapPad or Leapster Explorer units. It does. In fact, the version we received is exactly as shown - a white adapter with a rounded/domed plug - and the box actually says on the front and back that it works for ALL Leapster Learning Systems - explicitly stating that it includes the Leapster Explorer and the LeapPad Explorer. We have a Leapster 2 as well as the LeapPad and this works for both of them. Why the product description mentions that it isn't compatible with the Explorer systems, I do not know. The only reason I can think of is that Leap Frog has updated this item since it originally appeared and now includes those systems. Of course, what you receive could always vary from what someone else received, but we just got ours this week (May 6, 2012) and the pictured item is what we recieved, even if the description doesn't match. As far as I am concerned, this is a very fair price for an electrical alternative to batteries, especially if it works for all the units Leap Frog now makes. Oh and one last answer that I couldn't find before I ordered it - the cord length is 6.5 feet (78 inches).

This charger works great. If you are using regular batteries in your leappad, you will need the keep it plugged in. If you have the leappad battery pack, it will charge it and there is no need to keep it plugged in. I have included a picture of what this battery pack looks like because my leappad happen to come with it and I didn't know some do not. The other reviews talking about needing to have it plugged in at all times confused me until I realized the difference. If you open the battery compartment and see this piece, no need to keep it plugged in while playing. Glad I found a replacement cord. I'd be replacing batteries constantly!

I bought this for my daughter's LeapPad 2 Explorer because she loves playing with it at home, so I figured instead of draining out batteries she could play with it at home (on plugging into an outlet at the airport, as we do travel a lot)... now the only time that I put batteries in the LeapPad is when we're in a long car ride or on the plane.

Looks just like the picture, was a very affordable price, came within a few days of ordering - everything was brand new and boxed and sealed. The cord was also a good length, she plugs it in and plays with it in bed. This doesn't charge up the LeapPad or batteries, this merely allows the LeapPad to be powered on via an outlet connection so that you don't have to use batteries.

I found this cord to be an absolute MUST when my daughter got her LeapPad2. Changing out batteries to the LeapPad2 every few days was not only a huge hassle, but also SUPER expensive. Save yourself some time and money by getting this LeapFrog AC Adapter. Some may not like the fact that your child is tethered to an outlet, but I didn't totally mind this, at least I could keep track of the expensive gaming device I trusted in my daughters care. Some might complain that you can't use this in a car or on the go, which is true, but I ended up getting a car adapter for that also. You might think it's a lot of money to spend on a cord, but I shudder to think about the amount of batteries that my daughter would have gone through in the last two years had she not had this cord. I feel like I definitely got my money's worth out of this Adapter.
