I'd suggest that you use the correct replacement. There are many types of chargers or ac adapters and they all are not exactly rated the same. Some may not be fully regulated for voltage and current. If you did electronic testing you may have a clue as to how safe it is. Many people simply plug stuff in based on web pages. On my way to work I saw a house fire. Is your house and life and possessions worth not getting the correct part?

As long as the AMP rating is equal or higher than the original charger you will not cause an overload. The voltage must be the same however or you risk causing problems. You should also check that the replacement is wired correctly for your device. Some proprietary units have the + - polarity reversed on their connectors.
If you plug in the wrong polarity device you fry it.
