Even more evil, as a car's electrical system generally doesn't have very good voltage regulation.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: NEVER PLUG ANYTHING INTO THE ZVM'S USB PORT EXCEPT A COMPUTER!!!

Ok, but what about the ac adapter into an inverter in the car. We have taken to getting an inverter for each car and stop buying the car chargers for everything, mp3 players, cellphones, etc.

Inverter should be fine. They tend to be pretty well regulated.
