Problem with Socket Scanner - Alternative from this scanner?

We've just started using Shopify Retail POS package and found the Socket scanner 7Ci to be working only about 60% of the time.  We have to scan many times to get some products to register.  It frequently has signal drops off and have problem recognizing some barcodes.  We own a small grocery store with average of 10-15 products per check out, so I can't afford to spend time scanning at the right angle on everything we sell. 

I do find that these problems rarely occur when I use a cheap scanner with Shopify from my desktop...but it is not a POS.  Been using shopify online for years and would like to find ways to make this work. 

Any suggestion that I can use other scanners with my new IPad, receipt printer, and cash drawer that I've just bought?
