When you say “piggyback”, do you mean “integrate”? As in, build it into a P60 pill? yes, you can.

This simple pill takes 17mm drivers with low depth, as an example.

I would recommend a linear driver that draws up to 3A. You could try more, but the traditional P60 pills might not be able to cope with the heat.

You could do that, but P60 pills are so cheap it would be better to just build a new module with the driver.

What exactly do you mean by piggyback anyways?

I guess you want to change the UI without too much effort by somehow appending a new driver. I don’t think you can add a new driver easily without removing the original, at least in a way that the module will still fit. Also this should be either in the 18650 or in the Modding section.
