Finepix A345 (crica 2005) battery drain

I rescued a Finepix A345 from my eldest niece recently. It was purchased in summer 2005 and she used it for a couple of years only. Its been in a drawer ever since!

I had to remove the two batteries that were STILL in there - and clean the contacts. I inserted new batteries, hit the power button and it instantly came to life!  Luckily there is still an xD card inside. Everything works well - the zoom, the screen etc. However, the batteries drain completely after just 10-12 shots! What could be causing this ?
