Default External keyboard power usage

Hello,
Recently I bought an "Y" OTG cable which has additional charger input. I own a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet, and unfortunately it doesn't charge through this cable. Anyway, asking teoretically, if I connect external keyboard through Y cable with charger plugged in, will this keyborad be charged from tablet or charger, or maybe charger is obsolete and keybord will drain battery anyway?

you need a kernel with usb otg + charge support. And a cable that emulates a multimedia / audio dock.

I made one of this cable, with a 65K resistor and works great.
