I am trying to get one light strand to function with a different battery by cutting off the batteries from the light strands then switching the battery controllers and soldering the new battery controllers to the other light strands. Here is a picture of the light strands lit up normally.
Specifically I am trying to get a light strand from blue El wire (uses 2 AA batteries on its black controller) to work with the batteries from a different green light strand (this one uses 2 CR2032 batteries in its white controller, see picture of unlit green light strand with exposed CR2032 batteries) .
I don't care how long the new battery controller/El wire lasts, I just need it to light up for about an hourish. So far I cut off the black battery controller to the El wire, and soldered it to the new white controller with the CR2032 batteries but it does not function. See picture:
Then to test my soldering and polarity of wires I soldered the other cut off green light strand to the cut wires from the blue El wire with the AA black battery controller and it worked.
OVER ALL QUESTION: So is there anything I can do to make the blue EL wire light strand work with the smaller CR2032 white battery controller from the other green light strand?
FYI Here are some links to the products I am talking about on amazon if you have further questions:
This is the exact El wire product: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BUIN3XW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I want to attach this light to another similar light that uses 2 CR2032 batteries.
Here is the link to the controller:
