    Hi all,

    I read around that charging your mac with a charger that has a lower wattage then the one "made" for your mac is bad on the battery. I read here that the correct charger for my Mac is (Late 2008, Aluminum MacBook) is 60W and that is the wattage on the charger I'm using right now (one from the Late 2009 Unibody MacBook). However, I noticed today that the charger that actually shipped with my Mac was 85W? Do you think Apple made a mistake or what? One the website it says that 60W is the right power for my Mac so I assume using the charger i use now (60W) won't do anything bad. Any opinions?

    Thanks,
    Pietro

    Thanks, i've used it for a while now and it seemed that it was able to keep it fully charged also while powering the mac itself.

    Thanks,
    Pietro
