: : -How long do they last?

: Practically forever. Hawking radiation allows the hole to evaporate but it takes tens of hundreds of billions of years to happen.

Just a slight addition to your well stated facts, Hawking radiation also allows for Black Holes to explode, and Mr. Hawking himself suggests that this may be happening now with primordial Black Holes that were supposedly created during the Big Bang. Bring Black Holes to their fate before their time (hundreds of billions of years).

Other than this, your reply looks pretty complete.
