As far as my experiences have turned out, the USB connection does NOT charge the Archos Unit. You still require the AC adapter in order to charge.
If you want to charge it in your car, you can buy an inexpensive power inverter that plugs into your 12V connection in your car and gives you a standard 3 prong plug.
There are also USB charging cables available for the Archos. I bought one on eBay a few months ago and it works well
