Mine can do it. At least it goes to the Archos firmware charging screen.

The charger delivered with most players is not regulated and has an
output voltage with is too high for long time charging (upto 15 V even
so it says 9 V). Ideal would be an regulated output of 10 V, but a
regulated charger with 9 V will also do it (charging will be a little
bit slower). I've got one, and my studio doesn't get that hot anymore
during and after charging.
