Battery light flicker?

Hey guys, I always notice any little thing about. Especially if it's little problems like what I just experienced. So I made a pit stop to the store, and noticed that when my car starts hitting certain rpms the battery light flickers on and off on my dash... Car runs fine but if ya rev it or get to higher rpms, it flickers and flashes on and off... What do you guys think this is???

Yah man do you think it's like overcharging or something? The gauge needle does set on the high side?

There are two sets of wires one is the red charging wire the other is a clip I think with two 16 gauge wires and those two tell your gauge how much it's putting out. Normal operating volts are between 13.5 to 14.3 volts usually

Well I've been taking all the rigged crap off the car that people have done to it all the years... And I know it's got these hid lights on it, like those ones you gotta wire up, and you got them power boxes the lights get the power from or whatever, I wonder if Mayberry those were rigged too and that's where I'm getting the problem from I'm wondering???
