    It should work..... The MB power adapter only have a lower voltage rate which shouldn't make much of a difference.

    Except well it takes longer to charge.

    You're probably referring to the lower Watt rate, as the charging voltage is likely the same. I agree with you otherwise.

    It should work just the same, the only difference being that the MB charger won't fully power the MBP when its under load (i.e. running processor intensive apps).

    I do this all the time. I bought an extra power adapter right before my mac died so I use it with my MBP.
