Q: Battery light comes on when I take my foot off the gas. on 2004 Ford Explorer

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
This just started today, and I've dealt with a battery light issue in the past (always on), but I've never had one only come on when I disengage the gas pedal, or press the brakes. I'm curious if this indicates a specific part failure, and if so which part should I look into first. Should also be noted that the light never came on while I was accelerating, or cruising.

I was forced to drive it all day and I kept a very close eye on my battery gauge, which has only gone down a hair since I noticed the issue this morning. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
