Help me not fry my laptop

I have two laptops, both Dells. I'm going on a trip and would like to take only one power brick. Can I do it? Specs inside.

Work Laptop's power brick accepts 100-240V and 2.5A, and it outputs 19.5V and 3.34A.
Personal Laptop's power brick accepts 100-240V and 1.6A, and it outputs 19.5V and 6.7A.
Both are standard US-plug adapters, nothing quirky there.
Both physical connectors are the same, so either power brick will physically fit into either laptop.
Can I safely use the 6.7A adapter for both, without frying Work Laptop?
Googling for this is surprisingly hard, or else I'm just bad at it....
