Use RC batteries and possibly a UBEC if the battery voltage is above 6v.

The voltage is the same irrespective of how many servos you are using - my "standard" servos can operate between 4.8V and 6V. Each servo will draw up to an amp though, so your issue is power, not voltage. i.e. that power source will need to be able to provide ~ 5 amps@6V or ~ 30W.
