Lasers are about the worst thing to light your cigarette with... pointing something that can easily blind you right by your face isn't a great idea. I've never lit a cigarette but I know that 300-400 can light matches, and burn through CD cases. I recommend lighting a match with a laser and then using that match to light the cigarette

Yea, I misinterpreted your question. Honestly, there is no accurate way to gauge your lasers without a LPM
