magsafe question

I still have my old 60w magsafe adapter from my old macbook (white)... would this be okay to use with my 11 inch air that uses the 45w adapter? It know it would charge the battery faster, but will it cause any damage? I'm just wondering because I know its nice to have a backup if something happens the the 45w one and I would need to use my Mac before buying a new adapter... thanks!

Power adapters for Intel-based Apple notebooks are available in 45W, 60W, and 85W varieties. Although you should always use the proper wattage adapter for your Apple notebook, you can use an adapter of a higher wattage without issue.
