Hello tj2000, welcome to the forums!

First off, are you trying to put it in a host, or just a labby style circuit?

If you are going to build it into a host, I would recommend the JAD or "just add diode" kit from survival lasers. This takes care of the driver, heatsink, and host. All you need to do is put a diode into a 12mm module, then solder the driver leads to the pins. super easy
Link: Bargain No-Diode Host Bundle

If you are not going to put it into a host, I would get a different module and driver...
Just to keep it simple, I would use a 12mm module
Link:Laser Module Host for TO18 5 6mm Laser Diode with 2 Elements Glass 445nm Lens | eBay
Also, I would strongly recommend getting a heatsink for that!
Link: 1pc 12mm Holder Clamp Mount Heatsink Cooling Laser Module 20x27x32mm | eBay

As for the driver, it depends on the diode you use. It is helpful to choose a diode that someone has tested, like the A-140. If you scroll to the bottom of DTR's page, you can see his test for the diode. This helps you choose a current you want to run your diode at.
https://sites.google.com/site/dtrlpf...m-h1650-diodes

Seriously though, there is barely any experience with the diode you linked (that I know of). So, I would switch to the A-140. Abarnett sells them for $15 each, which is CRAZY cheap!
DIODES on SALE!!

So, say you switch to the A-140. Knowing that you want to have 1 watt of power, I would run the diode at 1.25A. This gives you a little above 1 watt.
Survival Laser Driver

As for the switch, I like it

But it's all up to you. Thats the fun of building a laser yourself
Hope I helped!

Hi,
Yes indeed go with one of Gary's host kits from his shop , i have many and all are worth every penny at a great price and he's right here in the states , no Chinese stuff here just all quality material in his items. one stop shopping i say Host ,drivers ,lens, contact boards heat sinks in a variety of options . You will never be disappointed when you purchase any one of these for your 1W build.

I appreciate that Rich. Just to clarify, some of our components are sourced in China as well as the US, but all orders are shipped from southern Utah.
