I'm looking for a reasonably priced test load, "pre-made or needs assembly". Really dont want to pay almost $60 for the one from SL... I'm running the NUBM44 ACS5500 with 2 18650's.

Diode test loads are sold by survival laser, or were.

Survival lasers go there and buy the 3w and the 20 covers all you need

Even though I'll be running over 3 amps of current?

You can build one for far less money than that one on SL or anyone else's kit or prefab. You just need diodes, a resistor (I'd go with a 0.1 ohm 2 watt 1% or higher power), a blank proto-board, some header pins and shunts and a good hefty double clip lead with heavy gauge copper wire. You can buy 10 amp rectifiers with a PRV of 1000 volts at ~$5.00 for fifty units.
