    I would like to use this in an application where I need much higher resolution, but it won’t need to measure more than 2 lux or so. If I just put a big resistor on the ground pin, will that effectively multiply the voltage on the signal pin? Also, while this won’t need to actively measure more than 2 lux, it will still regularly be exposed to 100+ lux while it’s on. If putting the resistor on there will fry a 5V picaxe I/O pin, it won’t work.
    If this doesn’t work, I’d appreciate any ideas for something that would. I would just use a CdS photoresistor, but linearity is very helpful.

    On the other hand, it’s two bucks. You might as well just buy a new one.

    This is the cheesiest, most lawyer-with-too-much-time-on-his-hands thing they could have done. You have my full support.
