Those don't supply enough air. They can supply a air tank that will supply enough volume of air, but they pump very little amounts at a time. Filling up a tank with one of these can take a very long time.

get a cheap cordless leaf blower. in the field, use a small car inverter to charge it. that and a battery powered bbq sparker from home depot is a good field kit.
