Jump starter as dual battery set-up

I just picked up a jump starter- cause it was cheap - and had to use it on the way home ( father in laws car), so money well spent! From good old Chinese distribution warehouse - Dick Smith

Got me thinking on running it as dual battery for the car fridge. It can be charged from the car via cigarette lighter, and fridge has built in low voltage cut off. Weaco 40 litre

Can the jump starter stay on 12 v charge whilst fridge is plugged in? So the jump battery acts as a surge tank between charging?

I know the battery is not deep cycle and made more for high amps over short time, listed as 600A.
