Yes there is a big difference in efficiency, but I was calculating heat that is put in to the host, which is only 13.51% - 8.79% =
4.72% increase in heat output

Ya, pretty much sums it up

I was calculating HEAT output, with a linear driver the excess energy is converted into heat and disipated into the host, which is why I included it.

Even if you Ignore the driver,
The difference in heat is small,
assuing 4.5V and 1.6A
the difference in heat between a 1W laser and a 1.6W laser is 10% increase in heat.

Here.

Err, 7.4V * 1.6A is not diode input.
