I picked up a 6 inch 12v muffin fan at Radio Shack, then a 9v RC car battery pack and charger on sale. Total cost maybe $25. All I had to do was crimp the snap wiring connector (included) to the the fan wires. Whole rig less than 1/2 pound and can fit in my cargo pants pocket. Zip the fan snugly into the inlet zipper, plug it in and long before I finish connecting lines, I can bounce a quarter off the kite skin - even my 18 m phanny. One charge will do a dozen launches or so.

All I would add is a wire protective grate over the fan inlet. (Also cheap at Radio Shack). My colors don't bleed but my fingers can!
