    Hello all.

    I recently talked to Apple tech support and they said that the rMBP 85W Magsafe2 charger and the MBA 45W Magsafe2 chargers are incompatible.

    They have the same plug and some posts I have read indicate that some forum members are using the rMBP charger on the MBA.

    Are they indeed interchangeable?

    Thanks.

    Yes, you can use a higher wattage Magsafe on a lower rated laptop, but not the other way around.

    yes ... it will work fine, but don't expect faster charging though :)
