Why Can’t My Car Battery Hold A Charge

I have already replaced the battery and the alternator (at the cost of $400). The engine has trouble turning over, and I can’t drive further than 10 or 15 minutes before dying after my car has been sitting on a charger for over an hour. I can’t afford to keep guessing at what is wrong, and no tester has been able to identify the problem. Please, please, please let me know some other reasons why my car won’t hold a charge.
