    Yes, the computer knows how much power to draw, and using an 85W adapter on your 13inch MBPro will be perfectly safe.

  • Yes you can use the 85w charger as the macbook can have the power regulated down to the 60w it needs automatically, you couldn't use the 60w adapter on a macbook pro though.
