Will 30W USB-C Adapter (w/USB-C to Lightning Cable) SAFELY Charge older iPhones and/or iPads?

I'm not asking nor concerned about Fast Charge, I just want to know if I can SAFELY charge older iPhones (5/5S/5C/6/6S/SE/7) or older iPads (4/Air/Air 2/Mini/5/6) using the 30W USB-C Adapter (w/USB-C to Lightning Cable)? This would be for a situation where that would be the only charger I happen to have on hand. Thanks much for your time.
