Default CH341 Programmer - any good for 1.8V?

Hi guys
I have a TL866 CS Eprom programmer and up until now it did everything I needed to do

However for the first time I have come across a 1.8V Eprom and my programmer will not do 1.8V

I need to program a 25Q64FWTG

I could splash the cash and buy a V11.71 TL866II. These come with various attachments and the kit including a 1.8V adapter is either €62 with 12 adapters or €68 with 1 7adapters. I also have the option to buy just the programmer for €46.70, if I could get the 1.8V adapter separately and use the other eprom adapters from my TL866 CS

But another option seems to be to buy the CH341A for much less money €10.30 which says it does 1.8V and 24/25 series eproms

I never used a CH341A - are they as easy to use as the TL866CS?

A third option is to get a 1.8V adapter for the TL866CS which is even cheaper but I remember seeing somewhere that they don't work/are useless? Though I don't know why.

What's the best option, and why? I only really need to reprogram motherboard (desktop/laptop) and maybe GPU BIOS at the moment. Would the cheapest option do the job just as well as the most expensive?
