Macbook Air (original) Charger

Hi, i have an old Macbook Air that my Aunt gave me, but it doesn't have the charger. I have one but it doesn't work, my question is, Can I take the plug from the Macbook charger and solder it to a Dell Charger, I know the voltages are different but maybe with a regulator it can work.

Please if someone have done this any help or directions would be most appreciated.

Just get an aftermarket or used one on ebay!

No, the Magsafe doesn't just provide power, there is a negotiation involved.

You can pick up used 45w MagSafe adapters pretty cheap, far less effort to just buy one.
