Likely your battery was mis-diagnosed and replaced. Your symptoms are consistent with as bad alternator or other charging system malfunction. Have the battery re-charged and then have the system checked out. Quick-check is to put a volt meter on the battery and check volts with engine running. With no accessories on, charge rate should be about 13-14 volts. With all accessories on, charge rate should go no lower than 13 and should not continue to drop over time.

Your alternator is not charging at full amps.
Your alternator could be OK:
1. It could be a loose fanbelt ($12) that runs the alternator pulley.
2. The fanbelt may be dirty or have a coating of oil on it.
3. Replace the alternator fanbelt if either of these (or similar) is suspected.
Your alternator ($80) could be bad:
1. Take your car to an Auto Supply store (AutoZone?).
2. They will check the alternator in the car for free.
3. Call ahead to make sure the store will check it (free)
4. I think Sears Auto also checks it free.
Hope this helps & it's just the belt.
