The number of Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y units has surged in South Korea, like in many places throughout the world, and the company has just announced a new piece of hardware in the country that’s set to make charging easier.

Tesla announced plans to release its CCS Combo 1 adapter later this month in Korea, available for KRW 299,200 (about $250 USD) with tax, according to a note from Tesla (via Reddit).

The CCS1 adapters are set to become available as soon as Tuesday, October 19 for preferential purchase tickets, and by the following Tuesday, October 26 on the Tesla Shop for general customers.

The note from Tesla, originally in Korean, reads, “Now it’s more convenient to charge your Tesla. With the new CCCS Combo 1 adapter, you can safely and quickly charge your vehicle even on public fast-charging networks.”

The user who shared the note explained that the part will only be able to work on Model 3 and Model Y units, though that information about a release for Model S and X units would come at a later date.

The adapter will allow Tesla drivers in South Korea to charge their cars at a number of public fast-charging stations. Many regions throughout the world have begun phasing out CHAdeMO charging, in favor of CCS1 and CCS2 hardware – perhaps in hopes to begin developing a standard of sorts.
