Default USB Tethering?

I have this wireless charger thing and it is supposed to charge it fully. But I can't! I can actually plug it in, use the phone while its charging and LOSE battery... So I think I need USB tethering to make it charge. Because it did work before but it stopped since I changed my ROM.
I have stock now, with root, and GravityBox. I looked for the USB tethering option and wanted it to appear in the quick settings box in the notification bar, and it doesn't show for some reason...

So can I do something about it?
Thanks!

Why don't you plug the phone into the charger provided through an outlet?

And as far as I know of, USB tethering is supposed to allow you to access your files on the computer, not enable wireless charging -_-

your problem is kind of confusing. what you want to do?

usb tethering? yes/no
charging through usb port? yes/no

fyi
when you are usb tethering, you can not browse your files in nexus 5.
usb tethering only shows up on the notification bar when in use.
while usb tethering, the phone slowly recharges.
