People in the comments are concerned about the current rating of the LED, and rightly so. Turns out the phone charger I’m using puts out about 3A. That seems insane to me. I wouldn’t think a cell phone could handle that kind of current.

The LED is rated for 750mA and I happen to have another phone charger here that meets that exact requirement.
