    No, the computer only pulls the power that it needs.

    You currently can't use it on non-retina MacBook Pros seeing as they haven't been updated to use Magsafe 2

    You can use it in all MacBook Pros with Retina Display and the 2012, 2013 MacBook Airs. Previous generations of the MBA still use Magsafe 1
