Default 65w charger in place of 90w?

Is there any harm in using a 65w charger in place of a 90w besides slower charge times?

Probably not a good idea, I would bet they are different voltages/amperages possibly causing damage.

I wouldn't do it..

Bad idea IMO. You need a charger rated for your particular laptop.

Ditto, the lower wattage won't make your portable recharge slower, but it can frak up your system.
