TPS27082L: Is this part appropriate for high-side swithcing of a Litium Ion Rechargeable Battery?

Part Number: TPS27082L

I use these switches in my boards for switching Vcc on for peripherals and am very happy with their performance.  Could I also use this switch to for a single cell LiOn battery powering a circuit.  I beleive it would work well when the circuit is a pure load.  However, what about the situation where the circuit contains a charging function and will need to reverse the current to charge the battery.  

If this chip will not work, can you recommend one which will?

Thanks,

Chip
