Hello all,

I hope all is well.
I am finishing up and excel-based inventory tracking project, and I have run into a snag.
I need for forklift drivers to be able to scan barcodes into iPad; however, I cannot find reasonably priced scanners compatible with iPad. I have tried several work around using munbyn scanners, but the power source is too great to use via iPad.
Can anyone provide direction?

What price do you consider a reasonable price?

Sometimes the lowest price is synonym of low quality.

How many scanners do you need?

Do you want them rechargeable ? With a carrying case?

Do you have a colour preference?

Would you buy a product made in Asia like in Taiwan?

Seeking compatible scanner; the scanners I have are corded and work with PC and laptop (they work for what I purchased them for; $37 per scanner). Preferably corded so they are not subject to hitting the ground if they are dropped. Just needs to scan to an excel spreadsheet.
