Can I use the Samsung 45W charger on a Galaxy Note8?

I got the charger and was wondering if I can charge my phone or my Tab S6 Lite with it. I know it won't charge with 45W but with 15W fast charging. I just wanted to know if it will burn my devices as it's a higher wattage charger and uses more power.

***No stupid comments that my phone/tablet doesn't support 45W charging. I know that obviously. I read that this charger can be used to charge most type-c devices at their supported charging capacity, like my Note8 supports 15W charging. Is this true?

The charger and the device will do a handshake and determine what charging mode to use. See your charger, it has multiple volts ratings. It's safe for these chargers. It's not a constant rule though, always consult the ratings of your chargers when not used with the intended device.

Hi YourGranddaddy, You can charge your phone using any Samsung-approved travel adapter, but charging speeds may vary depending on the charger. Use the charger that originally came with your phone, or use only Samsung-approved charging devices and batteries. Samsung accessories are designed to maximize battery life. Using other accessories may invalidate your warranty and may cause damage.
