So, we start to find the correct circuit for my DIY charger. After some Google research I found the Maxim MAX1811 IC. It's a single-cell Lithium battery charger that can be powered directly from a USB or from an external supply up to 6.5V. It's use a SO-8 Package, easy to solder and can be sampled at Maxim. Other chip features are: You can select between 4.1V and 4.2V battery regulation point; ? You can select between 100mA and 500mA current drain from USB.
