Should be fine it'll work with any 5v USB source I've charged batteries in one of these from a phone charger, smart tv, TiVo box, PC, laptop, USB wall plug and many more

You don't say what the 18650 battery is, its use, its current? its C rating. 18650 batteries need a charger that looks after them, a USB or the type of charger you talk about isn't going to look after the battery.

Id recommend a SKU 3514902 this will take care of your batteries

I have one of those ( SKU 1254101 ), except US plug version.
I think it will work with your ml-102, but it will charge slow. Most of the 5v usb supplies sold here don't put out the rated current and this sku is worse than most. This is my review:
