    Does anyone use the 85watt 15" MBP adapter on their 13" unit? I do not think it matters but wondering if the extra 25watts will hurt the battery on the 13" unit over time? anyone truly know?

    I have an extra 85watt adapter I started using and then wondered if would hurt the MBP 13

    From the CHARGING section of the following link:
    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

    You can use a higher wattage charger with no issues, but usually a lower wattage charger than what is specified won't work.
