A new endpoint for Hawking evaporation

We show that certain charged black holes in string theory have a new endpoint for Hawking evaporation. As they evaporate toward extremality, there is a topology changing transition which removes the horizon and singularity and produces a Kaluza-Klein "bubble of nothing". This should lead to a completely nonsingular description of Hawking evaporation.
