Simple question, can I use my MBP charger (85W) on my new MBA 11"?

My understanding is that using a high wattage is fine, as the charging circuit in the MBA will only draw as much power as it needs. However, you should not use a lower wattage charger. Is this true or am I talking rubbish?

Cheers.

The wattage is pretty irrelevant. Using higher is perfect as it only draws as much as it can. Using lower is fine as well but charging may take longer or if you're running something heavy, it may not get enough power.
