Default [Q] Can Moto X use car charger for HTC Sensation?

I have a car charger (plugs into cigarette lighter) that I bought for my old HTC Sensation. The brand is HTC, and it's sold for the Sensation.

Question: Can I safely use this charger with my new Moto X? The micro USB plug of the charger will fit my new Moto X, but I wanted to be sure there wouldn't be an electrical problem.

I am coming from the Sensation as well. As I understand it, as a rule, electronics can get damaged when they try to pull more than what the charger can deliver. So as the Sensation had a more powerful charger, we should be OK.

You would not want to do the reverse, and plug the Sensation into the less powerful Moto X charger.

The Sensation must have one powerful charger. The Moto X charger is 1150mA, which is pretty powerful already.

Thank you, flashallthetime, jhedors and Groid, for your advice. It sounds like I'm O.K. with the HTC charger.
