It is possible to re-solder the leads. But use care and apply the iron only to the circuit board and not the battery envelope.
Also double-check the polarity before soldering to make sure you get red + and black -.

It helps to make sure the solder pads are cleaned of any oxidation or adhesive from the tape.
If it takes more than 5 seconds to make the joint: Stop. Let it cool. And clean it before starting over.

Once repaired, add some extra tape to prevent flexing of the wire at the solder joint.
