You can run the camera from the USB adapter, but you must have a battery installed.

Which is braindead. As is the choice of USB socket.

To run the camera from mains/USB only, you'll need to go the dummy battery route.

It's that way because the USB route is not able to supply enough power to the G9 for all loads. Thus it needs some power from the battery.
