My 2meter radio is rated at 65watts and I transmit at full power without any issues.
Only issues that can happen is that the radio will get hot but that's only if you are talking non stop for long periods of time.
Edit: a 2meter radio at the minimum power setting at 5watts will still have greater range and clarity then any cb radio setup so you don't always have to run it at full power
