No.
1% chance to get it done that way.

Kickstarter project could be an exception (I heard of this at one time, probably in > $200 range.)

So, it's better to go with a standard UPS... Just for knowledge: which kickstarter you are talking about?

There are some telecom battery backup unit that can offer DC 12V UPS which is more efficient than 110V AC UPS. (Search eBay)
Re: kickstarter campaign
Sorry I forgot, not a backer on that project. It's at least 6 months ago.

LP Alpha/Delta has 3 different and independent power paths:
4-pin DC_in, USB-C PD sink, 10-pin 2S Li-Ion battery pack.
All have their own designs and associated requirements.

As I had stated earlier, not sure LPA will accept 12V 3A USB-C PD power supply/battery pack when 15V 3A PD power capability is not being offered. You'll have to test yourself. If 12V3A offer is not accepted, only LattePanda engineers can answer your question.
