Leaf and Volt chemistries

How similar are the leaf and volt cell chemistries for charging voltages etc? I have just paid for a Leaf pack which was oddly a difficult thing to find at a reasonable price and I wondered if I could repackage and combine each Leaf cell with a Volt cell in parallel to increase the range.

I haven't taken possession of the pack yet but as i am trying to use as much of the original Leaf hardware, and I know they must communicate, I was hoping to cheat a bit by having the volt cell piggyback the leaf one.
