Default Will this work?

I'm currently (slowly) buying parts for my custom c6 build from survival lasers and DTR. It will include:

Module
12mm copper 5.6mm module with 3 element glass from DTR

Diode
A140 diode I picked up a while back

C6 Host
DIY C6 Host Assembly

Heat Sink
Unanodized Aluminum Heat Sink

1.25a Driver
Survival Laser Driver

Do you think this driver is sufficient for a a140 diode?

This is my first custom build and from the looks of it will only total $59.35 with host, heat sink, driver, a140 diode ( I paid $15.50 for), and the DTR Aixiz module w copper and 3 element glass. I'm estimating around 1W What do you think?

This is my first custom build, and I am very unsure/nervous about soldering directly to the diode pins and actually pressing the diode in the module. I am confident in my soldering skills, just not on such sensitive materials.

Would you guys consider these for a permanent solution?

Please let me know what you think!

Thanks

Na man that driver sucks and it's not a boost driver. You need a boost driver to run the diode with a single cell. Spend an extra 15 dollars for an Xboost driver. Also don't bother with that wire mount. I don't think that would fit in the C6 anyway. Don't worry about the pins, You'll be fine if you trust your soldering skills. Use some shrink tubing over the wire and pins so they don't touch and it also makes the connections a bit stronger.

As far as the current of 1.25a, I don't remember if that's too much for an A140 or not. But otherwise you should be ok.

I only chose the driver so I could run dual 16340's. Think it would be ok for that? I kinda figured the wire mount wouldn't work as a permanent solution. Sucks, but i'll solder it. Thank you for that.

Yeah as long as you plan to use 2 batteries a buck driver is what you want. I heard a lot of bad things about these drivers though because they are originally for LEDs but it'll probably work. Just be mindful if something goes wrong.

Thank you, I appreciate that. I've been looking for a power graph for the A140 diode, but haven't had any luck as of yet. I'm hoping for 1w or close to that range.

I appreciate it! I plan to do a step by step build tutorial if everything turns out ok. Maybe it will help more noobs like me!
