Default Had to jump battery and now no power when accelerating

Well I got in my car this morning and tried to start the car. It clicked a couple times and nothing. I jumped the battery and it fired right up. Let it idle some and started off to work. The fasten seatbelt indicator was on, even though I was buckled in. When I accelerate the car does not move. if I feather the throttle it will accelerate a little, but if I press it more nothing, no acceleration.

It ran fine last night, then this morning a almost dead battery and no acceleration. I am thinking the battery is on its way out and everything dosent have enough power to operate correctly. I will check the volts when I get home and see if its the alternator or the battery.

This is just strange. Even my E46 didn't do this when the battery was low and needed replacing.

Thinking about this, it kind of reminds me of when a turbo went out in my 300zx twin turbo. It would idle, but when I would accelerate no air would go thru the seized turbo causing no acceleration.

Anything I should check?
