We would like to use an iPad-compatible Bluetooth barcode scanner to scan Codabar barcodes into form inputs of a web app.  Does anybody have any experience doing something like that?

On the interwebs, I'm seeing products such as these that claim to be iPad compatible and so would be good candidates:


Scanfob 2002:

... but I'm hoping that someone with actual experience can offer recommendations or caveats.  Remember, it's for entering Codabar barcodes into a web form on an iPad, so we're looking for ease of setup and ease of use for that purpose (as well as robustness and durability, natch).
