Lipo charger and stepup single ic


looking around for a simple way to power mbed with lipo battery and charge it onboard while operating, i came accross "Power Banks" for cell phones https://www.google.com/#q=power+bank+2600mah. They use ETA9635 single IC, some cheaper ones (cause wasn't cheap enought) uses FM6316FE which is similar to ETA but without any protection (over discharge, voltage inversion). http://www.etasolution.com/upload/product/ETA9635.pdf

I'm not expert in lipo stuff, these solutions seems the most easy but also the less reliable, question is: is there any alternative (in price and simplicity) from some trusted manufacturer?
