MagSafe 1 vs 2 – Interface Comparison

Is it safe to use a different wattage charger for MacBook

If you cannot find the appropriate wattage power adapter for your specific MacBook, you can use a power adapter with higher wattage.

For example: an 85W adapter can be used instead of a 45W for your Macbook Air. It’s 100% safe.

Using a lower wattage adapter than recommended is not going to work.

For example: If 85W is the power requirement of your MacBook, a 45W or 60W will not be enough to charge your Macbook.

Can I Use a Different USB-C Adapter than from Apple?

It’s safe under 3 conditions:

  • Choose the right power wattage
  • Use original branded power adapter such as Anker or BASEUS
  • Use original branded USB-C cable.
