Battery controller that gives battery level?

Hi everyone!
I am wanting to go mobile with my project and am wanting to implement a li+ or lipo battery pack and charger. What I also want, so that I may prepare for production, is a controller/charger that also allows me to query the battery level from my app(I'm running win10iot if that's important)
I'd also prefer it be able to support a battery big enough to power my pi and 2x12v DC motors, but that's not as important as they currently have an 8xAA alkaline battery enclosure they're running on, so being able to untether my pi and query its battery level would be tremendous, until we move beyond the pi.

Something like this would be wonderful:
But I'm having trouble tracking down a board similar to this one that can support 12v or higher as might be need to run the pi as well.
