Several CPFers have tried this with varying results. Because you can't guarantee the sensitivity of the LED in terms of A/W, nor can you guarantee that all of the optical power from the laser will be focused onto the LED's chip, your results may vary. It's an interesting experiment though and it might give you a coarse and semi-believable reading.

I guess i'm just looking for a "is it more powerful than last time" measurement... Accuracy within 30 or so mw?
