It is quite normal for the ammeter to twitch when you depress the brake. That’s a result of the small but instantaneous brake light current. Before I set-off on a drive I will look for that characteristic as an indication that the brake lights are likely working normally.

And don't forget that as you come to a stop your charging system stops working. So you will go from charging to discharging and back again each time you stop and go.

It feels weird for someone used to a modern car where the battery can stay charged at any engine RPM, but it works perfectly well as long as your electrical system is healthy.
