94 Clio 1.4 RT Battery Warning Light

Last night the battery warning light came on and shortly later the inevitable happened, never good with an auto.
I charged the battery overnight and refitted it this morning, drove home but the battery light came on again within a few miles. I borrowed a multi meter and checked the battery and alternator output and all seem fine but battery was still running down and light still on. (it goes off when revs over 4000rpm). I have the battery on charge again tonight.
Do heavy duty batteries take longer to charge as the haynes suggest?

Any ideas on the cause of the problem I've done the usual checked the earth, the terminals on the alternator and I am puzzled at the minute.
