Is it possible to recharge and use a battery at the same time?

When you are using your laptop battery, f.e., and you plug in, the laptop uses the energy from the net while the battery recharges. But is it also possible to make devices use energy from their battery at the same time while it is recharging?

Thank you in advance.
Update: @ TV Guy: No, look at Stephen Ms and bernzs answers.
@ bernz: Thank you for your elaborated answer. And sorry for my linguistic mistake (net instead of power grid).
I do not know if it is possible to route it directly to the device in this scenario. That is another question I guess.
