Yes, just about any programmable DC load in this class will suffice.  It’s just convenient to be able to punch in current or power limits, dial them up and down, and have everything including fans, thermal management, etc. in one compact package on the bench.

At the time I was looking, the Kunkin, while yes, from China, had a lot hands-on reviews on YouTube.  So I just went ahead with that.  Worked out okay for me, but one kind of annoying thing is the banana jacks on the five-way binding posts don’t seem quite standard (!) — I will probably change out the posts on mine.
