    I am designing on a school project where my project is to charge rechargeable batteries using the following voltage range from 3V to 12 V.. If I am to charge an Li-ion batteries using the following input range.. The max allowable charge voltage for Li-ion batteries is to be 4.2V but since the lowest input voltage is 3V.... the input has to be 1 or 2 voltage higher than the output...I am struck as how i goes go about in charging an Li-ion batteries from the following voltage range from 3V to 12V... Suggestion are welcome...

    You can use a current limited voltage source.

    Voltage is 4.2V current limited to whatever is appropriate for the battery.

    You will need a buck-boost converter to handle the input voltage range.
