Default Lithium-ion Micro-t?

I was wondering if you dremeled out the sides of the battery holder, could you mount two of these?

If your thinking "Why not just go lipo?", this is cheaper at 5 dollars a cell. a AAA battery holder at Radioshack for a buck. but, can the micro-t electronics handle 7.2 volts?

Default Lithium Ion 7.4V 750mAh Battery Question.

Hi,

I have a Lithium Ion 7.4V 750mAh battery made for my digital camera. If I used it on my Micro T with a hotter motor rated for 7.2V would that fry the RX/ESC?

Thanks.
