Does the battery on screen get charged by base?

Will the battery on the base charge the battery in the screen? Like if I'm on clipboard mode and I deplete the battery, will plugging it back to the base charge the battery in the clipboard, if I don't have the charger with me?

Don't have the book yet, waiting for mine, but I'm curious if the base can charge to clipboard.

MS deemed the energy loss from transferring one to the other a waste of battery life.

Bummer. But if the clipboard drains, I can just connect it to the base then, and while it won't charge the battery in the clipboard it should at least let me use it in laptop mode? If not then I might need to get a second charger hehe...

...oh and my book should be getting to me soon...hopefully no more delays
