Ways to tell if MagSafe 2 is functioning correctly after repair

There are some GREAT guides on here on repairing the MagSafe system. My rabbit decided to chop mine right in half (that is, dead-center between the portion that goes from the power block to the adapter that connects into the MagSafe2 port on the computer, leaving me two evenly length halves). Based on the guides here, I stripped the wires, soldered them, and then secured them with heat shield. Multimeter confirmed continuity. The LED lights indicate correct function, the computer runs without issues, and the input voltage based on the computer seems correct (even though it probably isn't super accurate.)

But I realized I do not know how to test it further to ensure it is functionally OK. What voltages should I be checking for? (via iStat Menus, it shows almost exactly 20 volts DC in while charging which I believe is correct, but frankly I am not sure as I cannot find specs to check.)

Any thoughts? Should this be given further testing? Thanks!

Zac, 20 Volts is the correct voltage. So as long as it works and has the right voltage, looks like you fixed it:-)
