I have a 13" Macbook Air Late 2012 model and would like to use a spare power supply from my old 2008 Macbook 13" which is rated at 16.5 Volts at 60 Watts. I have the Magsafe adaptor but before I plug it in I would like to confirm that no harm will come to my beloved Air...

I ask because the Air's power supply is 14.85 volts.

Thanks for any help...

It shouldn't do any harm.

I believe that Apple makes a Magsafe to Magsafe 2 adapter. It's like $10.

The power cube automaticly reduces the amount of power depending on the system, macbook pro 85, 65 macbook pro 13", and 45 macbook air.
Does not matter.

Thanks guys, as I stated in the original post I already have the Magsafe adapter, just wasn't ready to just plug it in and try it out with some confirmation as to how safe it would be...

Oh ok… then don't worry bout it it should work fine without a problem ;) If anything all it will do is charge the battery faster.
