In order to use current you'd need a shunt on the DC load side of the system and you'd need to program the banks capacity into the charger
. Cruising Equipment/Heart Interface, later became Xantrex, used to make these but they were often quite glitchy. I have a number of customers with half the system working and the other half they are scouring eBay for parts
to hopefully make it work again..
I don't know anyone making anything like that today but if anyone does I'd like to hear about it..
