How old is the battery? Has it been tested? No bad cell(s)?
its good its only 3 months old
How was it tested? Even new batteries can be defective!
alternator and charging system was tested on a machine
Starting wityh a fully charged battery(assume 12.5 volts) turn on the high beam headlights (engine off), and let it sit for twenty minutes and re-test the battery.Might show a bad cell.
