When tech comes out that makes things easier, Gadgets 4 Guys can get behind it. We got those little packages of tape that are pre-cut and perfect to use when trying to wrap a million different gifts for Christmas. Instead of buying a ton of books and wasting a bunch of space along with paper, the Kindle (and other eReaders) have eliminated the need for that unnecessary evil. Remote start for vehicles helped make the midwest that much more bearable to live in so you don’t have to freeze to the leather seat during those winter months. All of these different gadgets helped make our lives easier. Did we absolutely have to save those extra 10 minutes by buying a particular gadget? No, but why do something the hard way when there is an easier way? The creators of RoboReel were thinking the exact same thing.
RoboReel is an extension cord that actually has a motor built into the base that will (upon pressing of the button) bring the extension cord back in perfectly wound up. That means you no longer have to worry about trying to wrap the cord around your elbow and hand risking kinks or breaks in the extension cord. There are some other options out there that offer a spring loaded option but will create a dangerous whipping action (like lose an eye king of whip) which RoboReel tries to remedy. RoboReel will also be able to sense if the power cord is damaged or if the power is overloaded and shut itself down.
Since we got the chance to try out RoboReel ourselves and chat with their team, we got a sense that they had a lot of pride in their products. RoboReel can reach a 100 foot diameter and offers a moving output which makes working with it in a garage or shop very flexible. The end of the RobolReel actually has three outlets on it so you will be able to power multiple tools with it. The base of it was heavy enough to keep it grounded while you pulled the extension cord out but light enough that it was easy to move. They also have RoboReels available for water hoses and air hoses. Overall, we loved the RoboReel and were very happy with it. See it in action below.
