Treat yourself to the LiPo SHIM, the most compact Raspberry Pi power supply possible. This discrete, slick and tidy power solution is a LiPo/LiIon power supply shim for all versions of the Raspberry Pi.

You have the option of having the shim permanently installed by soldering the PCB directly onto the GPIO pins on your Pi, or, solder the provided 2 x 6 0.1in female header which will allow you to remove your LiPo SHIM at any time (but will block the GPIO pins).

The shim features the Texas Instruments TPS61232 step-up boost converter which gives up to 96% efficiency. Also included on the board are power on and low-battery indicator LEDs.

There is a one-line installer that will initiate a clean shutdown when the low battery warning is triggered and GPIO #4 is pulled low. More details can be found here.
