a good battery shouldnt really keep dying in the cold, so possibly you need a new one, how old is the current one do you know?

Unfortunately you need to replace it..... end of story ! it will probably still give trouble when the weather warms up so might as well get the benefit of a new one now. Batteries are a consumable when it comes to cars and any battery over three years old is doing well.
