    There are several types of retractable cord reels available. I have a 120 V one and one that has a 12 V trouble light on it too. Just Google "retractable cord reel" -- there are hundreds of models available in all sizes. You could also get one that was made for another purpose, like for USB, and reload it with 12 V capacity wire too.
