    Just download PDAnet from the market and plug the phone into your computer for tethering. That way you keep the battery charged at the same time. WiFi hotspot will only chew the battery. If you root, save the wifi hotspot for when you don't have a cable handy.

    If you root you can also download wired tether which is also completely free. All you need are the drivers (which you install when you download HTC Sync).
