Are 60w & 85w power adapters safe to use on MacBook Air?
I've seen internet postings on various sites saying that it's safe to use the 60w and 85w Magsafe power adapters with the MacBook Air (which comes with a 45w Magsafe power adapter). But I can't find any official statement from Apple confirming that this is so. Just curious if anyone can definitively confirm that it is indeed safe.
(I know the 60w and 85w Magsafe power adapters have a different form factor and that the MacBook Air can't sit flat on a surface if you use them -- I'm just curious if it's safe to use them on my MacBook Air.)
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
well i have an old MBP needing 85W that will NOT work with 60W
i dont think that as mine is not backward compatible that the same mba - mac book air - of the same era would also not be compatable - it may work here n there temporarily but then damage the internal(s) of the machine as its designed to take less w-age - less wattage - NOT more or not 25W more then normal, however the only realy way to know is ... suck it and see some mac are different to other - i would not suck it an see id get a 60W as you dont want find it kills your mac if you try it its at your own risk.
So long as the connector is compatible with your MacBook Air you shouldn't have any issues as the computer will not draw more than the wattage required to charge it. The standard draw of the MacBook air is a max of 45Watts and that draw only occurrs when the computers battery is very low and you are running several applications while the computer is recharging the battery,
