I think some more info may help people help you. How long have you been using them without a charge? What all are you running?
Not sure if your saying that they are dying 5 minutes after you installed them or if its been 5 days.

I agree that some more info will help.

Besides the questions from MotocrossCamper...

How do you know they are dying? Did you test with a voltmeter?

How much of a charge did you give them when you bought them?

What size are they, how long have you been running them and under what load?

I'm sure there is a simple fix here.
