RoboReel Portable Power Cord System

The Good Great Stuff's RoboReel Portable Power Cord System makes managing 50 feet of heavy-gauge power cable a breeze with its automated two-speed retraction system. A number of safety features are built into this lightweight and flexible system.

The Bad High price will deter many home handymen and -women.

The Bottom Line The RoboReel is one of the most advanced and manageable extension cords around, but this heavy-duty system comes with a heavy-duty price.
