From my initial newbie incubatiion into this sport, I find the biggest weak link (next to my inexperience) is battery flight time.
Does anyone use a 110volt battery power supply/inverter to change their batteries in the field?
I’m thinking about this unit from Amazon. Your expert thoughts please.

Check archives. There is more written on this subject than I could tell you. The one you have shown is mentioned in a post on power converters.

Personally, I think it's a great idea for charging in the field, and in addition, they make chargers that charge 3 batteries at once, as well as the RC(I have the Thor brand). It looks like you picked out a great portable power supply, and here's another good looking one for less;

This is NOT a sport even the laziest person on the planet would never consider this a sport

Just bought a Honda EU2200i generator. Perhaps overkill, but we may have a hurricane!

I bought a Yamaha 1000W gas generator for multiple purpose reasons. I can easily throw it in the trunk if I think I might need it. However I rarely use it, I usually don't fly more than my 6 batteries in one day. My 90W DJI car charger occasionally gets used when on travel, but not much since I can charge all 6 batteries in the hotel room.
