Can I charge 18650 cell W/ an internal charger using an external charger

Might be a stupid question but I am not sure….
I have a 18650 cell with an internal USB charger.
Can I also charge it using my Opus charger or only by using the USB socket?

Either are fine. You have more control with the Opus if you like. USB does what it does.

@zoulas could be right, but I don’t think so.
Does your’s have a cap that comes off with a ‘regular’ external USB plug-in, or a micro-USB slot?
Not that I think it actually matters.
Here’s a slot version being tested: https://budgetlightforum.com/node/49984
He charges it either way.
