O.K. folks, here is a well-made practical tool. It is designed to wind & unwind strings on a guitar - not to change tires on a NASCAR racer. Just put batteries (not included) in it, take it out of park, and pull the trigger - forward or reverse, your choice. Simple. It works. The end.

I just had carpal tunnel surgery done and have been wanting to get one of these. I finally got it and yes it works! I dont know why people think it is too slow? It is quick for me and if it went too fast people would pop strings or hurt themselves. If it every breaks I will buy another!
It has forward and reverse and fights bass and guitar machine heads.
Very well made.
I got mine for cheap and it helps a lot.

      Saves time stringing up my guitars. The 12 string is a breeze now. Much faster than the hand winders. Should have purchased one a long time ago!

          I use this to change string my two Square Neck Resonator Guitars and it is great. It requires AA batteries but that is find I do not use that often. The batteries don't discharge in 3 months which is how often I change my strings

          Comments about Ernie Ball PowerPeg Battery Powered String Winder:

          I first saw this gadget I believe on Martin's web site where a technician was using it to string one of their guitars. It looked so easy I decided to get one and see how it worked. Didn't expect a gold plated case as some others seem to have expected and I didn't get one. What I did get was a plastic, battery powered, string winder. It isn't heavy duty but I am not pounding nails. I am simply winding up and unwinding strings and, having a lot of guitars, I do that quite often.

          I have been using this tool for just over two years now and it is still working as good today as the first day I got it. This little gadget has saved me a lot of time restringing my guitars. When I am about to go to a gig and at the last minute decide to put on new strings before the show, I no longer have to struggle with cutting and unwinding stings at the posts that have often left me with punctured and bleeding fingers. I just apply this little jewel and off come the old and on go the new and it is really that easy. It takes using it a time or two to get use to which way to pull the trigger but so was learning how to turn the tuning pegs on our first couple of sets of strings.

          I chose this particular one because, having a lot of power tools with batteries, I know that if they are not in constant use and recharging regularly the battery will die. So I chose the one that you have to put batteries in. I have changed the 4 double A batteries three times in two years and I do a lot of strings. Just remember to remove the batteries if you are going to store it for a few weeks or months just in case a battery leaks. Other than that you should have a functional and easy to use tool that will make stringing your instruments a lot more enjoyable. And yes I have recommended this to my friends but not my enemies.

            Well designed. I was using a drill attachment plugged into an electric screwdriver. This is easier to handle and use. Always use the tool designed for the job!

                I've had mine 2-3 years now and it started working intermittently about a year ago. Now it won't work at all. I've taken it apart and the issue is in the switch. So it is time now for a new winder.
                Having stated my disappointment, in fairness... What did I expect for 20. I expected I would get more than a dozen uses out of it.
                I might get the Pro or even the Penguin by B-Band next time.

                        Have been putting off buying one of these for a long time. Finally got one yesterday. Really like it. Very handy tool. Makes stringing a guitar much easier. I have 8 guitars to string so it is especially nice to have.
