Can the GX-85 be run solely off of USB power?

Hi All,

Got a good deal on a used GX-85 and ordered it to use as a backup/travel camera. One of the other things I would also like to use it for is as a webcam for conference calls, since it outputs a clean HDMI feed.

From reading a few other threads here and elsewhere, it seems people are using things like: https://smile.amazon.com/DMW-DCC11-Coupler-DMW-BLG10-Battery-DMW-AC8/dp/B07336HHRS to power the camera.

But given that the camera has a USB port, can I run it off of a USB adapter plugged into a wall outlet? It's not clear from reading the manual. I tried doing a search here and found a few threads that talked about needing a voltage step up/converter but they seemed to be for people using power banks and such.

So is it possible to run the GX-85 off of USB power from an AC adapter?

And if not, is there a dummy battery/coupler thing that I can plug in a USB cable to or do I have to use a full set like https://smile.amazon.com/DMW-DCC11-Coupler-DMW-BLG10-Battery-DMW-AC8/dp/B07336HHRS?
