    Greetings!
    I want to make a circuit to charge THREE 3.7V li-ion batteries connected in series (total voltage = 11.1V). The circuit must include overcharging protection. And i want to be able to charge the battery as well as use the circuit powered by the battery (while its not being charged).

    Use a lm317 set to 12V, or lm7812,

    In past designs it was not allowed to have a load attached to a LiPo battery under charge because the charger is looking at current draw during the pre-charging and charging phases and voltage during the terminal phase. Having a load attached and drawing current made these measurements difficult and interfered with the charging process.
