About MeLe Design Firm:
We are an enthusiast owned CNC company based in Portland, OR. We make industrial, rugged, and functional lightweight battery mounts for various vehicle fitments. We were the first company to offer a direct fit, bolt in solution for the 2015+ Subaru WRX and STi.
Initially we built the mount around the tried and true Odyssey PC680. It is light, has been on the market for quite some time, and anyone who was making direct fit mounts in the past designed only for it. We have since had a consult with Odyssey here on the west coast and are planning to fit their PC925 and PC1200 as time allows us to develop for them.
We now fit the XS Power D680. This offers those who are worried about cold battery performance some comfort as it has 320 CCA, vs the PC680's 170 CCA.
Vehicle Specific Benefits:
2008+ WRX and STi our mount and the PC680 sheds 13.8 lbs from the nose of the car and helps to lower the center of gravity at that point
08+ WRX and STI creates clearance for charge piping from front mount intercooler kits (no more rubbing charge pipes on the OEM battery)
08+ WRX and STI creates a large area of real estate to custom mount various items under the hood
05-09 Legacy GT offering a mount where the after market often over looks these enthusiasts.
all of our Subaru mounts have the option of being compatible with I Wire's fuel pump relay kit. We have collaborated with them to ensure proper fitment and integration if or when the customer decides to build their vehicle for more power.
13+ Focus ST our mount and the PC680 sheds 17 lbs from the nose of the car
16+ Focus RS our mount and the PC680 sheds 31 lbs from the nose of the car
Lead Time From Time of Order:
Because we are enthusiast owned we do not have the luxury yet to do this level of development and CNC work full time. Typical lead time from time of order is 3 weeks. Over the past 6 months of rapid growth and expansion we now have a large amount of physical material on hand so processing and manufacturing is not only smoother, but faster for the customer. We handle all of the manufacturing in house with ZERO outsourcing. We use all US sourced materials, most of which are locally sourced here in Portland, OR.
