Gotta be careful with that. SOME dc-dc converter topologies are isolated (forward,flyback, SEPIC) but the more common ones (buck, boost and buck-boost) are not. Also, there are few topologies that can give you 12v out with a 12v input.

Now, if you were custom building the DC-DC supply then you can certainly do it, but buying a dc-dc converter surplus and assuming it will be isolated is a good way to kill some batteries.
