Don't count on it. Your 18 watt device should be matched with the proper AC adapter. You cannot rely on the device to resist and limit a supply voltage more than 50% beyond its rated capacity. You wouldn't try to run a 110 volt electric shaver from a 220 volt receptacle, would you? If you try to purchase a fixed or universal (adjustable voltage) adapter you must also be concerned to match the polarity where the two meet. Some electronic devices are sensitive to mismatched polarity and will fail. Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer of the device to purchase a replacement ac adapter.
outside of improper polarity (assuming dc here, ac doesn't matter), if the VOLTAGE OUTPUT of the adaptor matches the INPUT VOLTAGE of the device it is powering, all is ok. as long as the current (milliampre rating) of the adaptor is equal to or exceeds the current rating of the device, all is ok. wattage is equal to voltage X amperes ... hence one cannot use the wattage rating of an ac adaptor to determine if it is is correct to use on a given device.
Perhaps. If the two devices accept the same range of voltages, the polarity is correct (although AC circuits do not care about polarity, reversed polarity is a serious safety hazard), and the power adapter to be used can provide at least the amount of current required by the device in question, then yes.
If the adapter is not rated to sufficient current, the device may or may not function -- the current will still be provided, but the supply voltage will drop. The power supply will generate additional heat.
A voltage mismatch may destroy the device.
Mismatched polarity for a device requiring DC power will not work and may damage the device. Mismatched polarity for a device requiring AC power will work, but may present a shock hazard, as many cases are connected to the neutral wire. Reversing the polarity will cause the case to be wired to 120V.
Examine your television set; somewhere at the back, you should see how much watts it uses. If it doesn't, look for volts and ampères, and multiply those to get watts. A kilowatt is 1000 watts; a device that uses 1000 watts will use 1 kWh per hour; one that uses 100 watts will use 0.1 kWh per hour, etc.
The adapter is so that you can use the smaller MSD card in a device that fits the normal larger Memory Stick. You insert the MSD card into the adapter until it clicks, then plug the adapter into the reader or device that uses a Memory Stick. The card manufacturers don't sell/make the original Memory stick, so they provide for the people who still use such devices in this manner.
