Re: 5ktq...batt keeps dying!

	My new 4kq had same problem.  It was a dead battery.  There is NO
way to drain a properly charged/good battery in 10 minutes.  You would
need cable as big as the battery and the posts would melt, battery would
blow up,etc.   Tell him to buy a new battery.  Problem solved :)
	Trust me, I'd bet money on this one.   l8R
