That really sounds like a bad battery, it can't hold a load, you can recharge those for days and they still won't do anything.

Ditto. Time for new battery. 'Completely charged does not mean it has CCA's available

Check the battery with a multi meter. If it reads somewhere around 12.4 volts, then take it to a place like auto zone to check the amperage in the battery. You need the amperage to work the starter.
