Charging the device via charger from Surface dock

Hi guys.I got myself Surface Book 1 but instead of charger I got the dock with its charger (pic).
May I use it to charge the Surface Book or I need original charger?
6 Amps seems to much.

You could simply plug it into your Surface, and see if it will change. If this is a non-Microsoft charger, that could be a risky move. However, the "Microsoft Japan Co, LTD" label suggests this charger was made my Microsoft.

If I were you, I'd probably just plug the charger in and see if it works. On the other hand: That you're asking on a forum, rather than just plugging-it-in, suggests that you've seen some red flag. Some sign that this charger may damage your Surface. Have you?
