Shipstone batteries (batteries that can safely hold a lot of power) are available to humans so the tablet's batteries should last for a long time.

hi hi

I don't know just how advanced the power storage capacities of Terran batteries are, so it is hard to make any kind of estimation.

The shipstones of Heinlein's novel were perhaps unreasonably energy dense, but even if one assumes that energy density is not unreasonable, I still have to wonder just how effective they are as explosives. (Given how explosive potential tends to go up along with energy density.)

Consider also that in the here and now there is a similar device (the Samsung Galaxy S10) that can bum a charge off of another of itself. Would be surprised if that doesn't become commonplace in the next 140 years.
