Message from MiniWare's service inquiring about firmware being opensource and the PD feature, from 5 minutes ago by email:

Quote
PD version MDP-P905 is on the development.
It can't upgrade by software, need hardware change.
The firmware will open source soon.

M01 will open source code this year
P905 will be released a little later

Followed up with miniware support:

MDP will release a new firmware in these two months,
Then I will consider first to open source M01

So we can expect M01 source code around February 2020 to the latest?

Are you sure your USB C cable is QC3 compatible?

I just got this unit, and my anker QC3 battery can power it -- but i have to use my anker powerline+ qc3 rated cable.

I grabbed the standard USB C cable that came with my gopro, no dice.

For all whom firmware update bricked the PSU or display unit (stuck in DFU mode) and don't want to wait for customer support; for me solution was to upload .bin file (without .ADR file), then it will appear with .NOT file. After that I uploaded .hex file and voilĂ !

I watched a couple of videos on the MXP-XP and thought "Wow, that's cool! Wonder if I can afford it?" It's C$400 here in Canada.  |O

I manage to bought mine for ~190 USD (both; display and base unit) from China using some black-friday promo codes. After 3 month of usage I would say that the main unit is fine but the display unit is a bit useless.
It can connect with base station only as far as 0,5m but maybe it just problem with my unit. Thankfully after last update it is possible to control the output in ON/OFF manner from the display unit and I can turn off main unit without disconnecting power source - what an upgrade. 
I would much more like to see solution where I could control all from smartphone app just like VOLTBOT.  I hope they finally gonna release source code which they claimed it a long time ago but it still didn't happened. Also I heard that they preparing newer version which will support QC and PD.

I would also suggest to be careful with switching between power sources (DC jack and USB). I powered mine with 24V and after that I wanted to try USB, so I waited a bit and pressed "on" button to discharge potential input capacity. Nevertheless it damage one of my USB ports:(.

I'm also having this annoyance, I emailed them and they said they're limiting the range to 20cm. This wouldn't be a big deal, but in noisy environments around other devices, the wireless connection has difficulty for me. Its a shame because otherwise (ignoring the lack of PD) I love my unit.

I did some looking into it, and it seems that they're using NRF24L01+ 2.4Ghz modules for the wireless connection, which appears to be a common part in the maker world. The NRF unit itself seems to be capable of much, much longer ranges than 20cm, so I'm guessing that it's being software limited. I'm surprised nobody has created a software mod to extend the range of the units, but it seems like it would be very doable once the source code gets released.
