This question already has an answer here:

I have a Canon EOS 1100D and I would like to shoot a long video, of a long concert, for example. Is there a way I can charge it while it is taking a video (not just when the battery is in the camera like this question asks)?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You can buy AC adapters that are not batteries that fit into the battery slot. You could try researching them. – damned truths Feb 19 '13 at 11:40
Would this work while it is taking a video though? – bazite Feb 19 '13 at 11:48
It is an alternative to a battery. I believe they are often used in studios. And yes it would. – damned truths Feb 19 '13 at 11:52
Thanks +1'd this comments – bazite Feb 19 '13 at 11:56
Before worrying about battery running out of juice you should probably worry about disk space. Related – GoodSp33d Feb 19 '13 at 11:57

What you are looking for is the "Canon ACK-E10 AC Adapter Kit" which does not charge your camera but instead allows it to run off of AC power.

But keep in mind that the 1100D/Rebel T3 is only going to allow you to record 17 to 29 minutes of video at a time. You will have to stop and start a new recording every 17 to 29 minutes depending on the settings you use for the video.
