Rated 1 out of 5 by Mommys7 Charrrrge It!!!!!????
The Leappad 2 itself is an excellent product and if given the opportunity to purchase again I would definitely do so. My problem is with the charging pack. After the first time using it you have to keep it plugged-in in order to use the device. Apparently I am not the only one with this problem. It's very frustrating especially when you want to take short trips or during certain quiet times. Seems like a waste of money if you have to keep it plugged in all of the time. I would not recommend purchasing this item until they fix this problem. But the leappad 2 is a superb product and I would purchase it again (minus the battery pack). Very, very durable.

I am so glad they came up with something rechargeable. This was my biggest complaint with the original Leappad we got last year. It went through batteries like crazy. I just wish there was a way to charge it without the Leappad. I bought an extra battery pack thinking I could have it charging while they played with their leappads and then swap them out not realizing that they had to be in the Leappad and it plugged in to charge. So now I have to return the extra one being as I have no use for it. I am thrilled for the recharging ability I hope they can take it a step further. Good product.

Having other game systems suck down batteries I bought this charging pack with the LeapPad. It was an excellent purchase. My son (5) uses his LeapPad when we go anywhere that includes a lot of car time and we have never had the batteries die. When he is done playing it he just plugs it in. I have not had to use disposable batteries or had it die while being used. He has had this since Christmas (2012) and it has not disappointed once. Anyone who has had other systems knows that any amount of play and you're shelling out batteries left and right. Needing four AA each time that price can stack up. This is well worth the price and the amount of batteries I would've used in the last six months alone.

If you own a LeapPad 2 you must have this recharger Pack. I bought a used LeapPad for my 3 year old because I thought he may be to young for the LeapPad2 and I didn't want to spend the money on the LP2 and have him not like it or break it, and a brand new LeapPad 2 for my five year old. You cannot use the recharger pack on the LeapPad and let me tell you I have to replace the batteries one a week. The recharger is awesome because you plug it in at night and it recharges the batteries. I would have bought the LP2 if I would have know that the batteries could not be recharged.

I bought the purple protector for my daughter's explorer. It was a pain to take it on and off just to change the batteries every other day. I bought the wall adapter thinking i wouldn't need the rechargeable ones and I was wrong again. It was great having the explorer in the car with us during all of the holiday driving. Of course we were not near an outlet while in the car.
Since we have had the rechargeable batteries, life has been great. I just plug it in at night and in the morning the explorer is ready to go. I love it and wish I had bought them sooner. They seem to last a lot longer than the regular batteries. I am only recharging it once a week. But she is back to school. This could play a large roll in the frequency of use. I wish I had a set of these explorers for my classroom.

After having the Leap pad 1 and going through a ton of batteries, this was the first thing I got after getting the Leap pad2. It last a very long time. Sometimes when I think its probably about time for it to go dead I realize an hour later that she's still on it and it hasn't went dead yet. I thought it was a little pricey but after seeing how long it goes between charges and how much I spent on batteries with the Leap pad1, I actually probably saved a ton of money. You should definitly get this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by twinmomma1 So happy I got this
I wasn't clear on how this worked, so I only ordered one for the two leap pads I'd gotten for Christmas. After getting the three items, I knew I needed to order a new one as soon as possible for the 2nd Leap Pad2. Even though we had rechargeable batteries, we couldn't predict when we'd need them. And it was a pain taking off the gelskin and the back every two days. It makes life so much easier to just charge them at night. Thank you for this change from Leap Pad 1 to the 2- awesome!

My two boys are allowed to only play on their LeapPad 2's as a reward and during long road trips. Although we don't use them all of the time we were changing batteries constantly - since we got these at Christmas we have gone through a Costco pack of batteries! Needless to say I am so happy with these recharger packs not only are we saving money but now we don't have to keep making extra trips to the recycle plant to get rid of the used batteries.
