    is it ok to use a 17' mbp charger on a 13' mbp or vice versa? what would happen if you do?

    My wife has a 13' and I have a 17'. I didn't realize there was a difference in the chargers so therefore I am sure they were switched and used on the wrong mbp more than once in the past 18 months!

    I have to buy a new one and wonder if one is ok for both?

    Yes, it will work. No, it won't explode! :D

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    Thanks for your reply. I just had 2 chargers go bad within the last month and both are less than 18 months old!
