Yes putting batteries in freezer does help in extending the lifetime of the battery. There is also one interesting observation i made. Pack your laptop in a nice plastic bag, put it in a freezer for sometime and boot it. You will experience improved performance for sometime(that is your system will be a bit faster). COming back to batteries, if you keep the used batteries outside for a few days u can see them to be workin for a small duration of time(Valid for only one time)

My grandfather used to do that. From what I understand, putting Alkaline batteries (common household batteries), extends their shelf life by less than 5%. It's not worth the hassle, in my opinion. However batteries used for electronics, specifically NiCD batteries, extends their shelf life by allowing them to maintain 90% of their charge for several months.
