After a lot of searching, I found the DR-E10 DC Coupler on the Canon website. Clearly when I was originally searching I was using the wrong key terms in my searches on google.

Being able to do this over USB is unlikely but not impossible. My Nikon D750 has 7-9V 2.5A stamped on the bottom of it. That's a draw between 18W and 22W. This is significant because you can buy USB step-up converters to get to 9V. The problem is most of these (one example) are limited in terms of current output to around ~5W... And 7W before they start ...
I put together a homemade solution using an 8V 1A power supply and a capacitor in the old battery housings. I'd recommend this approach if you're confident in your electronics ability, in particular in your ability to do it all patiently and carefully. You could easily fry the camera if you get it wrong.

Canon and Nikon cameras can be connected to AC power by means of an adapter that fits in the battery slot. For example, Canon DSLRs that take an LB-E6 battery (like the 5D II, 6D, and 7D) can use an ...
