Main Question or Discussion Point

like my previous post on two body black hole solutions, Ive got a question about a non-stationary black hole which is something not even mentioned in my GR textbook. Basically, would a charged, accelerating black hole radiate? If so would this decrease the mass of the black hole? Im pretty sure it would radiate and that it wouldn't decrease the mass but then again Im not sure how acceleration factors into its mass.

You can find a slightly related question in this topic: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=171003 and http://www.mathpages.com/home/kmath528/kmath528.htm

The black hole would certainly radiate gravitational waves.

I was really asking about photons.
