Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums,
I'm pretty sure at this time you will not be able to find such an item. The problem lies within the voltages required. USB is limited to 5v, a HDD requires 12v, that's why the externals all come with a power pack.

Feel free to google 2.5" external HDD's from either Seagate or WD.
All they require is a USB connection or two without the requirement of an external power adapter.
