Sure, when your iPhone is low on batteries, you could just use the standard cable to charge it up. Or you could use Mio I-zawa's umbilical charger if you feel like creeping yourself out.
This charger looks like a mix between an umbilical cord and a facehugger, twitching up and down as it charges your phone like it's sucking the brains out of it. It just looks like such an abomination of science, it really is gross. But I suppose it does give more character to something that's become pretty commonplace. But still, gross.
