A fun application of Drextech somebody once proposed was to have a sort of reserve
oxygen supply. The notion was to have diamond or otherwise tough little pressure
vessels somewhat smaller than blood cells containing compressed oxygen. At need,
determined by a sensor, a valve would open and reoxygenate the blood. They also
proposed using the release of pressure to store power for the later recharging of the
pressure vessel.

My thought was that you could use something like this as a miniature endothermic
generator, or at least as a heat sink for your ATP driven whatevers.
