Default JR8917 HV servos on 6.0 volts?

I just picked up a bunch of servos from an online sale and there are 3 8917hv servos in the pack. I have no intention of running a lipo pack so i'm wondering do they work fine on 6.0volt? I understand they will have slightly slower speed and less torque. Just want to make sure. Yes.... I still use 6.0v NiMh battery packs.

Yes, but since you are at 7.0v anyway, that’s near HV
5 cell NiMH is only 6.0v when it’s flat, over 7v when freshly charged.
