We obtain a new, exact, solution of the Einstein's equation in higher dimensions. The source is given by a static spherically symmetric, Gaussian distribution of mass and charge. The resulting metric describes a regular, i.e. curvature singularity free, charged black hole in higher dimensions. The metric smoothly interpolates between Reissner-Nordström geometry at large distance, and de Sitter spacetime at short distance. Thermodynamical properties of the black hole are investigated and the form of the Area Law is determined. We study pair creation and show that the upper bound on the discharge time increases with the number of extra dimensions.
