Yes, that's certainly another way of doing it - of course that does only give you a 'pack' resistance inclusive of the leads (as you mentioned) and that's excellent for that job. Of course, things are a bit tricker when you want to do a per-cell test, though yes, you can perform the same task via the balance tap one cell at a time and it'll work. One could also do all the same things with a suitable multimeter too if one is handy.

As with everything, there's no absolute need for a device, however a custom built IRM certainly makes a handy tool, especially when it saves you having to rig up your motor/esc/battery/TX and calculator.
