I've taken delicate seafood, such as crab, out to the field in 100 degree Baja weather and had no fear of it spoiling. Try that with an ordinary ice chest. I never have to worry about ice melting and waterlogging my food. My drinks are always cold without them being wet from melting ice. If I wanted to I could make it into a freezer and bring ice cream or Popsicles though I've never done it. The battery draw is minimal so you needn't fear your car going dead (as long as the car is driven daily).
I remember a time when I was working for some douche bag and every Friday the team would have a pointless meeting just so he could "act" like a boss. He would see me taking diligent notes throughout the meeting, he must have thought I was trying to take notes of every pointless and time wasting thing he was mentioning. Little did he know I was not even listening to him or even taking notes of his stupid ramblings but in fact writing down my weekend adventure's meals from day 1 to the end. I was making a shopping list of all the ingredients I was to buy at Whole Foods or Bristol Farms after work. It's a good thing he never asked to see those notes.
