Battery backup and automatic shutdown and startup

I did a quick search of the forum but didn't find anything that touched directly on this topic, but if I missed it, point me to the existing posts. 

I know the Pine64 has a built-in battery charging circuit and if I read the specs correctly, should be able to run off the battery, at least for a short amount of time.  I'm looking at developing a system where occasionally the power will flicker, and I want to have battery backup to keep it running through the bumps but if the power shuts down for longer than a certain amount of time I'd like to shut the unit down cleanly, and then when power is restored boot back up again.  For the Raspberry Pi, modmypi sells a little integrated UPS unit that about does what I want.  Could something similar be set up for the Pine64?  At the moment I'm just looking at the options and the Pine64 is a very attractive.


No need UPS, just attach a 3.7V Lithium Battery to Pine A64 board.
