Should be straightforward, but please note that soldering tip need to be tinned first (the process can be found online, it basically involves coating the steel tip with a layer of solder/tin)
The 40w iron heats up quickly and gets plenty hot enough. If you're using wires to link it all up it can help to heat up the wire ends and apply solder to it first, then try to solder it to the lugs.
Batteries are susceptible to heat, as is the plastic they're made of so be quick with the iron. Maybe do the job in several attemps and leaving a few minutes inbetween for the batteries to cool down

This soldering Iron is powerful enough to melt solder, if you have anything else in mind probably not.
