Can I use an iphone as a power source?

I'm new. I've searched the forum for an answer to this without any luck.
Is it possible to use an iphone as a power source?
For example, if I had a cord that attached from my iphone into say, a torch or speakers could I use the battery power from the iphone as the power source for the devices or is the power socket in the iphone a one way stream?

The iPhone is not designed to act as a "host" for other USB devices. As such, although it may be technically possible to change the pinout of the 30 pin connector by building a special cable, you'd run the risk of invalidating the warranty and/or damaging the phone (or attached device).Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
