I believe it would depend on what a GE 12 is, does it take "double A" batteries??

I saw one once back in the 70's. It takes six (6) six heavy 6 volt batteries. Won't do you any good without all the cables and the charger. takes about 15 hours of charge time to get all the batteries at the same charge. More info: https://www.myelec-traks.com/E12.html Good luck!

Most likely it will need 6 of the 6 volt golf cart batteries and good ones are now costing $120.00 to 160.00 each.

I know the GE 12 took six 6 volt batteries.
My question is. Weren't the batteries wired to produce 36 volts in the GE series of tractors?

most individual battery vehicles were either 6 6v wired for 36V or 8 6v wired for 48V. Modern electric cars are usually much higher voltage.

How do you hook up and run a 12 volt light on 48 volt?
