Emeryville, Calif. — LeapFrog has updated its LeapPad2 kids tablet to include a rechargeable battery and AC adapter.
“When we asked parents how we could make the next version even better, the top feature they requested was rechargeable batteries," said John Barbour, LeapFrog CEO, in a statement.
The four rechargeable NiMH batteries for the LeapPad2 Power are said to provide up to nine hours of playtime. Suggested retail is $99.99 with availability scheduled for August.
The original LeapPad2 is now 79.99.
The company also introduced the LeapPad Ultra late last month.
