Do you literally mean physically tethered by a cable?

If not (and doing this has been a giant pain in the bum on pretty much all the devices I have done it with), why not just use the wifi hotspot feature? It's easy to configure, means you don't have to faff around with a cable and is reliable.

Is a cable more battery friendly than using wi-fi to tether? I've never done any actual testing, but that's been my impression.
