Battery not charging

Hello, I have an '03 eclipse, and I am having some electrical problems that I can't figure out. I noticed that my headlights and dash lights were flickering (getting dimmer and brighter). I went to autozone, and they said my battery wasn't being charged. Also, they said that the alternator was getting too hot. I had recently replaced the battery and alternator. I took the alternator off the car and had it tested at autozone, but it passed. Does anyone have any idea why the battery wouldn't be charging when the alt and the battery are both good? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Leatglue, as I said in the original posting, I had the alternator checked and it is all right. Does anyone think it could be a wiring problem, or a part that's drawing too much current?
The flickering occurs both at idle and while driving, and even with the headlights off, I can still see the dash flickering. The belt is tensioned and the connections look good. I haven't had to jump the car yet, but with the battery being so low and apparently not recharging, I imagine it's only a matter of time.
