...that the 13th law of thermodynamics states that because a VR is designed to produce a certain amount of heat - if you start taking that heat away, it will start pulling more current from the battery to replace it.

This is the same reason that the ratio of the amount you restrict your exhaust to the amount it increases your fuel economy is equivalent to the weight ratio of wallet vs gonads.
