starting problem

I started having problems starting my car a month ago . I attributed the problems to corroded battery teminals. I cleaned the cables with baking soda and low and behold instant start. However after removing and cleaning the cables I was unable to get a good terminal connection on the posts. Car started fine for a couple of days then started, interminttently, then stopped starting completely. Jumps fine. I attributed this to loose terminals which I replaced and trickel charged the battery overnight. However, it apparently did not take the charge. Could this be something other than the battery (i.e., cables, etc.).

Replace both complete battery cables and have the battery load tested. Sounds like it's wiped.
