Before you replaced the battery did you check the charging system?

Same thing.
If there's a problem with the battery you have to check the charging system unless you know the battery is old or bad.
It's a simple matter to put a voltmeter across the battery while the engine is running. If volts are rising it's charging. If they're dropping then the charging system isn't working.

You don't need to rev it as the voltage should be rising even at idle but it seems like you've tested that to be okay.
You could also check your earths and connections but if your boy has a shop maybe just take it in and let him sort it out for you.
