Does the keyboard have a battery? And if not, does it drain the battery from the iPad?

Some times the keyboard does not work, and I am wondering if there is a battery in it that needs recharging with/through the iPad?
And if there is no battery then how does it work? Does it drain power from the attached iPad?

    The keyboard uses the Smart Connector between itself and iPad for power and data. It draws its power from the iPad itself and does need to be properly attached to work.
