Has to stay plugged in. It does not recharge the batteries. Just allows you to run the LeapPad from outlet power instead of battery power.

The system uses batteries and all this product does it helps reserve the battery life. You have to use this while plugged into the wall. The product does not charge up. I like it and think that it is worth it.

There is no internal battery for the leappad, you need batteries or the a/c adapter...and most kids don't sit in one spot long enough to be worth the a/c adapter in my opinon. I highly suggest investing in rechargeable batteries, any name brand, stay away from generics. Get 2 sets per the number of leappads you own and a charger for the batteries and you will be set! You will always have a set in the system and one ready to go, b/c let me tell you, this weekend my girls played on theirs and I"m so happy I have 4 sets of AAs, that is all I did this weekend, take 1 set out and put another set in. They played constantly. ;)

Will this adapter charge the rechargeable battery pack in our Leapster 2?

Will this adapter charge the rechargeable battery pack in our Leapster 2? Our charging station no longer works, and we've lost the orginal battery cover for my daugther's leapster. Unfortunately, this means she can no longer use the Leapster. :-(

Shoot, i just wrapped mine up in the box along w/the Leappad, but we DO also own the Leapster 2. I would assume it works on all leapfrog products. I asked the company on facebook a month ago before I purchased one if there is a sep. one for each of their devices and they assured me that this ac adaptor would work for ALL of their leapfrog gaming systems. Our charging station is about dead as well and I also have no idea where the battery cover is since we never used real batteries. Best of luck!

Yes, it does work with all Leapster systems. I checked, because we had purchased the Leapster L-Max, and I wanted to make sure that I was buying an adapter that would work with that system. As long as games, adapters, etc. say that they work with all Leapsters, then you will be able to use them with your Leapster 2.

Do you have to remove regular batteries before using adapter at home or in car?

I know we may not always have access to an outlet so if we do have regular batteries or regargeable in it do we need to remove those while using the adapter, or not?

Thanks!
