Anyone know anything about this? Their web site, www.techniiceusa.com, claims it can be used to reduce battery drain.

From the web site:

* 12 Volt Fridge/Freezers

Techni Ice reusable dry ice packs / gel packs can be used by placing one or two sheets in a 12V fridge/freezer to effectively reduce battery consumption and increase general efficiency due to the eutectic quality of Techni Ice compounds.

When Techni Ice reusable dry ice packs / gel packs are used in this manner it can also be left in the fridge/freezer whilst the power is turned off overnight to further reduce battery consumption whilst still maintaining basic refrigeration.

This also enables the Techni Ice reusable dry ice packs / gel packs to be placed in a separate ice box for use when away from the vehicle or boat, etc.

Pretty interesting stuff if it really performs as they advertise. It would seem that you could greatly improve the performance of your fridge-side on hot days with this stuff.
