Nitro, I'm sure Wayne will provide a proper explanation but the answer is no.

The ESR in the meter name stands for the Effective DC Series Resistance internal to the pack and is not the same as capacitor ESR which is an AC parameter. The ESR/IR meter needs the LiPo pack to power it and supply the voltage for the measurement.
