Can you charge an iPhone with an iPad

Strange question! But I was wondering if you can charge an iPhone with an iPad? I found myself sitting with 1% on my iPhone and 90+% on my iPad and got to wondering...... Is there a cable that'd let you do that?

The official answer will be no, the power connectors and battery will be set up to receive power only.

However, if you were *really* desperate then you could smash the iPad, located and rip out the battery, snip the USB end off your iPad cable (let's face it, you'll not need it again), plug the other end into your phone and through trial and error place each of the exposed strands against the two terminals on the battery until your phone starts charging...
