I use a combination string turner/wire cutter made by D'Addario. I actually have a few of them and keep them in instrument cases. They make changing strings super easy.
I have one of these too, that is part of my travel kit, in case I break a string and need to do a quick change while on the road. My normal cutters and battery string winder stay at home for all my scheduled string changes on all my instruments. Yes Dusty, these do work good.
