*Non-extremal black holes, which emit thermal Hawking*

radiation, have two horizons: the event horizon or outer horizon and

the Cauchy horizon or inner horizon. Surprisingly, for a broad class

of solutions to the Einstein equations, the product of the areas of

the inner and outer horizons is the square of the area of the horizon

of the zero temperature black hole obtained from taking the smooth

extremal limit. We use the attractor mechanism in supergravity to

motivate this result and offer a CFT interpretation.
