An electric chainsaw works ok, nowhere near the power of gas, but they work fine for many jobs. A battery powered saw is not going to ‘cut it’ in your application. They are fine for light limbing and things like that, but there is just not enough energy available in a battery pack to even come close to meeting your requirements – sorry.

Perhaps some tutoring and good safety gear would improve the situation? Chaps and appropriate steel toed boots are a very good idea, and a saw with a chain brake would surely raise your comfort level (if you are using an older saw with no brake).
