    i know with the smart keyboard attached uses the iPad pro battery but does it drain it much when only being used as a Smart Cover/Case?
    Or am I better swapping it to a Smart Cover only when not on sing it as a keyboard?
    Thanks.

    The smart keyboard doesn't even have a backlight. No. You won't have to worry about battery life

    The keyboard only works when the iPad is snapped into the typing position. So I figure it is only taking power then as well, which it requires very minimal anyways.

    The Apple smart Keyboard and the Logitech keyboard use the iPad Pro's battery but has 0 impact on the iPad pro's battery life.
