This integral is efficiently integrated with the Tanh-Sinh method (HP forum post). This method is particularly suitable for your function.

I did a quick check with my implementation: for a specified accuracy of eps=10^-4 Tanh-Sinh only performs 27 integrand evaluations to converge to 40 exactly, or at least very close (depends on the floating point format, single/double IEEE 754 or BCD etc.)

The WP 34S uses Tanh-Sinh. That implementation can be improved though. Tanh-Sinh is not considered a general integration method as it may perform quite poorly in certain (known) cases.
