Phone continues to lose charge while running "mobile hot spot" / Charging using USB on computer

I am using my T-bolt as my internet connection for my computer via "mobile hot spot".  The phone is supposedly charging from my computer's USB but it continues to slowly drain the battery.  Is anyone else having a similar problem?  Is there a fix?

It probably can't keep up with the battery draw that is required for the mobile hotspot.  USB ports on computers don't supply that much power.  Try using a wall outlet if you can and it may keep up.
