Are there any advantages to that horrible looking thing?

Several!

The extra parts, that extend the micro-USB 2.0 connection, increase your data bandwidth (allowing faster data transfers) AND increase the amount of power supplied. That means faster charging! It's completely backwards-compatible with micro-USB 2.0, so any old accessories and chargers you have still work (suck it, Apple), but at the same time, it increases your options because there is now more bandwidth and power available.
