6v is almost always better, but I do run some 4.8v packs on low-draw setups (6 servos or less).
You'll be A-Okay with 4.8v, gas guys running higher servo loads did it for years! lol

4.8v is plenty, for standard servos. If you're running digis or high torques, then 6v is better

If you run 6V just make sure the servos you have will run on 6 volts.

^No, run rechargables. MUCH better. For 4 AA's, a 5 cell NiMH will replace them.
