Anyone try these in their transmitter? I read where they "might" increase the Tx power for range issues. Any risks to the components of the Tx? Fully charged they have been checked at 1.8vdc.

They won't increase range. No batteries will.

The operating voltage of the radio section is probably 3.3vdc. This is maintained by voltage regulation devices and circuits.

Increasing the input voltage only serves to possibly strain the regulator(s) by increasing the delta-V.
