It’s come to that moment when you need an extension cable. While you’re happy to have them on hand, but you have to sift through to find the perfect sized one that isn’t going to be too long or too short. You can only hope that no one is going to trip on it, or that it’s going to unplug because it has fulfilled its duties.
The Cord Reel from RoboReel is an efficient and safe way to keep cords at the ready, but also out of the way. Instead of using a spring-loaded reel to pull the cord back in when it’s not needed, it uses a motorized two speed retraction system that will make sure no one gets whipped by the retracting cord of doom. There is a thermostat that will prevent overheating, and there is an automatic shutoff is the cord is severed. You can choose whether you keep it in a convenient carrying case, or put int in a ceiling mount, but there will be a difference in price. The Portable Cord Reel is about $330, and the Ceiling Mount Cord Reel is about $400.
