It was a first for me…they appear to be from the telephone wiring and are live, which is a bit odd.

Not sure what those are, but I do notice the Vermiculite or Zonolite insulation.

I had the same thing wired up to the door bell a while back. Before they started using transformers, this is how the door bell was powered

I see that type of insulation on 60% of my inspections.

I have a good narrative for that insulation should anyone like a copy.

No they are low voltage batteries that is why there is two of them in series.
They are lead on the out side .
I have not seen any of those for 30 or more years.
Yes the insulation could contain Asbestos .
Zonilite was the name of one .
I believe it came from a mine in Montana.
Does a good job but some people are concerned so make
sure you write it up and avoid a conflict.
