A 12 volt car batter and an inverter 12 volts to 120 is the only way.

A fan, yes, In fact, Ryobi sells a portable fan that uses the same battery packs used in its portable tools. But I think you'd be hard pressed to power a traditional air conditioner using batteries, because of the large electrical load the the compressor presents.
