    My MBA magsafe have stopped working, no charge no LED, I've a macbook alu magsafe and I'm wondering if I can use it to charge the MBA? Google says yes... but I'm concerned as it's not the same Volt and Ampere output:

    Macbook Air Magsafe Output: 14,5V , 3.1A

    Macbook Magsafe Output 16.5V , 3,65 A

    As Apple states, it doesn't matter. Yes, you can use it. Your Mac will draw only what it needs.
