so im a brand new mac user, this is my first mac, macbook air 13, max out.
i plug my friend macbook pro charger into my air for appox 15-20min, he told me i shouldn't have done that since his charger is 65 or 60 watts (not sure).
so should i be concern about my battery being damage or even my air??

No, the MacBook Air will only take as much power as it needs. You can use a "stronger" charger than your computer requires. Apple recommends not going the other way around (i.e. using your MacBook Air charger on a Pro) since it might not provide enough power to both power the computer and charge the battery. That said, it won't do any harm, either.
