    Yes, it's possible. The type of driver you are looking for goes by several names - boost, buck-boost, and step-up being the most common.

    A board like this should work: https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-7V-Lithiu...EAAOSw4shX~gW5

    Well, I guess my suggestion would be a little anemic then. Maybe you could pack 4 or 5 of them in?

    It should be possible to build the driver you want, but I haven't seen that anyone has done it. Maybe others have a better suggestion?
