That's a resistive tester. Your power draw will still fluctuate thanks to ohms law. For a computer power supply, it's insignificant, but once you test batteries or have large vdrops it starts to be...

A lot of people use car bulbs as a load tester - rows of old oven elements used to be my cheap way of load testing large sources (50kva+)

However,...

A basic multimeter can be found for roughly the same price or less and is certainly more useful than that, especially since one can measure other stuff with a multimeter.

It is simply foolish to think about it as "maximum resistance 10 mOhm".

If it's not crimped properly, or the connector has been used/plugged/unplugged more, the resistance could be higher.

If your connector is approaching 265C, bigger connectors or more connectors is a must.

You're gonna damage more than the connector at 265, you can reduce the lifespan of nearby fets, caps etc.

Interestingly enough, crimped together wires should have a lower resistance than soldered wires, because of cold welding.

However, yes, it would be the best solution, however keeping cable...

There's a limit. The sense wires won't compensate for any large voltage drops, only the small ones. It won't get high enough to damage your components.

This is why you don't get caps from ebay.

Use an actual distributor, (digikey, mouser, etc), and they're usually around the same price.
