Wondering

Was reading about LI-PO's,and the story mentioned,as you know their standard voltage was 3.7 Volts,,,however it mentioned that they can be charged up to 4.2 Volts......
I would like to know if all lipo's have this ability to be charged substantially over their designed voltage

Designed full charge lipo voltage is 4.2v/cell.
3.7v is the nominal voltage. The nominal voltage is what you would see under load, more or less, at the 50% discharged level.

Think of the 12v battery in your car. At 12v it most likely will not turn the engine over.
