Hand held remote for electric skateboard

Is it possible to splice a regular 9volt battery to eliminate lithium-ion battery. Remote is 2.4 MHz 300mAh / 42VDC2A Bluetooth.

Yes, but why? Most folk want to go the other way. You need to take the 9 volt battery down to about 4.2 volts using a regulator like this. Adjust the pot for 4.2 volts when on load. http://diyaudioprojects.com/Technical/Voltage-Regulator/Adjustable-Voltage-Regulator-Schematic-Improved-Ripple-Rejection.png

My problem is; the female portion of the remote to charge has separated and I now have to hold it in place manually. I have considered hot gluing back in place but would prefer both options honestly if I do fix. How about smaller batteries? Would really like to manage this as a new remote is 50 from company and I can’t seem to find a match on line otherwise.

There seem to be lots of 300mAh Lithium batteries on the market. The other guff relates to the controller.
