My electric toothbrushes keep dying...

I love using electric toothbrushes, because they force me to brush for the appropriate time, and they do a pretty good job. My current toothbrush (an Interplak) is now at the state where it will run feebly for about 30 seconds, then stop. This is after about 5 months of use. My previous model croaked similarly after about 6 or so months, too.
My wife and I probably brush a total of 4-6 times daily (combined), so I don't think our usage is out of line. Is there something I can do to replenish my battery or, if I have to get a new toothbrush, prevent it next time?
