Speedlite series with remote flash trigger


I have a question for Canon Speedlite users. I am going to buy a Canon Speedlite 430EX or 580EX to use with a remote flash trigger. Below is a link to show what type of trigger I am talking about. It is a cheap type of flash trigger.


But my main doubt and question is whether this trigger will work with the Speedlite series from remote distance. If so what is the maximum distance that is allowed. I am thinking of using it in the open field to shoot large scale of sculptural projects. I have a 5d mark II. I have studio strobes, but those are not convenient to use in the wild with no electricity. Please give me your advices.
