Default 806 split-charge query

2nd post in 'alf an hour! My 2001 806 (petrol) has been modified to replace the front passenger seat with an electric wheel-chair. The mod includes an electric 'lift' mechanism that lifts the wheel-chair into and out of the car (complete with occupant). The lift mechanism is powered from the car's 12v system. The wheel-chair has its own 24v system (two dedicated 12v batteries strapped as 24v). the conversion was done professionally, by 'Constables'. The car came with a mains driven charger for the chair batteries.
I would like to fit a split charger circuit of some sort, that would deliver a 24v trickle charge from the cars 12v system (only when the car is running, of course). Does anyone out there have any idea whether this is an achievable objective and/or how to go about it? Should welcome any suggestions/advice.

to charge the 24v battery you would have to "unstrap" them and reconfigure them as a separate pair of 12V batteries
you can't easily charge 24V from 12V

The idea occurred to me because of summat I spotted on ebay viz a 12v/24v split-charge relay unit (presumably it contains a convertor of some description?). Does that make the idea any less fanciful?

This device, according to the web bumf, will deliver an 8A output. I sent an enquiry to their web site but they haven't responded. Either they think I'm insane, or they don't know, or perhaps can't really be bothered!

that's for connecting two batteries that are
a: the same voltage
b: the correct voltage for the alternator

Oh! I read too much into it. Thanks anyway for taking the trouble to reply. (They clearly think I'm insane - ha ha!!).
