I have a 15" Macbook with a 60w mag safe adapter, it has stopped working, can I use an 85w adapter instead of the 60w? Is it better?

    If the wattage rating is higher than the product requirement it will cause no safety or damage issues.

  • The 85-Watt adapter is what you should be using for a 15" Mac Book Pro. The 60-watt adapter does not contain enough wattage to operate your computer under higher load.

    It is better, because the 85-Watt adapter is the correct one for your model.

  • But, the 15" MacBook pro is supposed to come with an 85w. You aren't supposed to use a 60w on a MacBook Pro.
