Can I use a powercord from an older ibook on a newer ibook if the output voltage and amps are the same?

My daughter has an ibook with a broken cord (right at the plug, no room to solder it), it's the white brick style. I've got a spare power cord from an older iBook, the round yoyo style. Plug ends are identical, the plug fits fine, both are 24v, 1.875 a output.
Tell me, is this a no brainer that it will work just fine, or am I going to fry her iBook?
