94 Cavalier Charging System

While freeway driving the radio cut out then the power windows then the engine. It seemed to me it must be the altenator. Got a new one installed it jump started the car and away we went. Four days later the battery died. I installed a spare one I had and it started first time. Then four HOURS later when arriving home noticed the power windows were sluggish again. I turned the motor off and tried a restart and nothing happened again. Am I missing something obvious are do I have a more serious problem??

sounds like the alternator isnt charging properly. To check, start the car and unhook the battery. If the engine still goes, the alternator is fine. You can also get it tested for free at certain places.
