Mysterious indicator with toggle switch

I need help identifying this indicator and its function. I know it's a check on battery and alternator, but why a switch? WHy would this get added on in addition to the regular panel indicator? I can't find a manual for it.

Maybe somebody put a toggle on it so that they could turn off the light(s) until they specifically wanted to see them. Some people (my wife, for instance) are bothered by all the little glowing LED lights that come on so many products these days. We have a black fingernail polish to cover those lights that we never want to see - for instance the LED on a charger to tell you it's plugged in.

It is switched, because NOT needed full time, and it would also be a phantom load that would discharge battery without much benefit while discharging; further, some owners might find irritating/ disturbing sleep, etc?
