    I'm looking into sub ohming and I'm wondering, will my normal 18650 charger work with an 18650 30a high drain battery?

    Yes, your charger will work.

    For your safety, I'd check the voltage on the battery after using it. You need to make sure you don't over-discharge the battery while vaping on a mech mod.

    Here's a good read and something anyone into 'sub-ohm' needs to know: Charging Lithium-Ion Batteries

    It should be fine, but it would have been a good idea to mention what charger you are referring to.

    Xtar, Nitecore and Pila are good chargers and most often recommended here.

    Anything with the word FIRE on them should be avoided. ;)
