I need to know the mass of a mini black hole that will detonate in a matter of a few days.

Do Black Holes detonate, as in explosively? Mass loss through Hawking radiation implies they could loose enough mass to stop being a Hole but is this a sudden phase transition?

Vague memory that Holes can go bang, maybe Zephram knows something about this.

I believe it will be about one-hundred thousand meteric tons. This will be incorporated into a SF novel.

108 Kg of material is a lot less than even a small hill so the swarszchild radius of the hole would be miniscule ~10-20 m. How would you `carry' this around.

Just a thought.
