How about going to your local hardware store and picking up a
'trouble' light with retractable cords.  Around the SF Bay
area, they run about $50 at OSH.  Then, for an additional
$8, pick up another 25' extension cord.  Swap ends
and you have a 25' trouble light, and a 25' extension
cord on a reel.
