Which Sony cameras can be powered by USB while taking images?

I'm not sure about this, so can someone verify, but I may have read somewhere that the a6500 and some of the A7 series can be powered by an external USB power source (like one of those portable USB lithium ion power packs) while shooting images such as time lapse without relying exclusively on the Sony battery or on an AC adapter.  Is this true?

Does anyone know which cameras have this feature?
