Sounds like a weak battery.

Terminals only? What about terminal wires? Did you change out those too? Its either bad connections, bad wires or weak battery. Have battery Load tested. If it continues after getting those done (new terminal wires & clean connections & tighten and use premium wire & terminals), Have your alternator load tested.
