Is It a Battery Charger, Too?

Could the Re-Volt be used to supply a constant current from one battery pack to another while driving? Here's what I'm thinking: replace the motor with a diode, inductor and battery back in series. Make sure the microprocessor code controls current. Set the potbox to the current you want, and away you go. In my situation, I'd like to have pack A supply a constant 70A to pack B while driving. Pack B is stiffer and will supply .5C usually, but can handle bursts of up to 3C for hill climbing and acceleration.
