© 2015 World Scientific Publishing Company. Starting from a generalized black hole entropy with logarithmic area corrections, in this paper we obtain (for positive value of the coefficient of the correction term) a generalized equation of state for black holes with two dual branches. In one of them (the usual one for macro black holes) T 1/M, with T temperature and M mass. In the other one, for micro black holes, instead, T M. We compare the equilibrium and stability between macro black holes and electromagnetic radiation in a finite box with reflecting walls, with the dual situation corresponding to micro black holes and cosmic string loops, also in a finite box. In this model, the dual phenomenon of evaporation of unstable macro black holes into a stable gas of electromagnetic radiation would be the condensation of unstable gas of cosmic string loops into stable micro black holes.
