It depends on the app -- some apps you use right on the tablet, without accessing anything online, in which case you don't need to worry about wifi or cellular service.

Like Jan, I'm surprised that people would tote around iPads while grocery shopping, but obviously they are doing something that works for them.

This site: http://appshopper.com/ can help you see what apps are available and how much they cost. There is a search box on the right side. It gives you cost, descriptions, and screenshots of what the apps look like. It may be a bit overwhelming, but it would give you an idea what is out there.

I have the original iPad and I'm still using the original battery. The only iDevice that I've had to replace a battery on what my original iPod Nano; however, that ended up getting recalled (and replaced) due to a battery issue. Batteries in Apple devices seem to last a very long time. Sorry I can't help much with that.

That's true about some apps. Don't know why I didn't think of that. Most of the ones you'd use in a grocery store don't require service at all. Some of the apps say you don't need to be connected, but some don't.

As for a battery.. mine is new obviously and my iPhone is 1.5 yrs. My daughter has had apple products for quite a while and she's never mentioned replacing batteries. I think that most batteries last a long time and if they do need replacing some of them are not replaceable in apple products. Never been an issue with anyone I know.
