I am wanting to do an overnight time-lapse with my canon 600D. I was wondering if anyone knew if it was a possibility to charge the camera or for it to keep its charge whilst connected to a computer via USB?

Nope it won't charge through the USB port. I'm not too sure if there are external battery packs for it or not. When I've done time-lapse, I just changed the battery halfway through or calculated how many shots it will take and changed it before it's dead.

One way to save battery power is to make sure you use an intravalometer instead of Magic Lantern (if that's the route you were going to go). ML kills the battery much quicker with time lapse.

Or you could use an AC power adapter Ack-e6 or whichever is correct for the 600d and power it from a 12v power tank and an inverter.

AC power adapter is what you need. I suggest you to buy original one, as they're really cheap for these bodies.
