Hi,

Can you run BLS-255HV on 8v from a Kosmik BEC? The specs only say 6 to 7.4v. Is that right? I don't want to burn them out by running at 8v.

Yes, 7.4v it is understood as the nominal value of an 8.4V battery.
They will be fine.

I've been running mine on a 2s lipo 8.4v forever. I think you'll be fine.

Though I think you would be ok, the factory suggests running them on 7.4 because that ends up being the nominal voltage when a 2S lipo bleeds off its peak charged voltage. That's why the voltage recs are what they are and were the basis for testing. They distinguish between 2S unregulated and 8V+ regulated
