Seriously, I don't know if you could quantify it, but it should make the humidity get about as high as you could hope for, if that means anything...
Sorry I'm not too helpful, as Lloyd pointed out elsewhere, I am more "at one with my plants" and tend to do things in unconventional ways with decent results- numbers don't figure in to my "technique" so much

so your saying small pump at bottom of bucket with an air stone to spread out bubbles that rise to the top?? with raise the humidity?? that is intresting?? what exactly is a air stone?? is that what you wold put in a fish tank filter or somehtin??
i find its a fine line between maintaining humidity while allowing air movement, but once tweeked it seems to stay suprisingly high at all times, since GP is very windy all year round i just allow that to move the air in my outdoor setup. via a 2 MM slit throughout whole length of setup and 2 3"x 3" trinagles at bottom far corners, i havent altered this for a month now and i havent seen humidity under 70%, but i also have a drip system to spray majority of plants all day
heres a question, can constant misting be detremental to some plants?? or unbenifical?? could that possible be y my plants have not dewd up like lloyd and VAR's??
id say since its outside try and find that fine line by making holes in sides, before riggin up another electrical system, i like to try n keep stuff simply just cause im no fan of electricity, and also having more things inside setup to maintain control takes up space that could be used for MORE plants but i dunno??

Misting is REALLY good for Helis and can help out Neps if the humidity is too low, but for other plants, I've never noticed anything "special"- Sarrs, VFTs and most sundews don't show any difference that I've noticed if I mist 'em
Jay told me that at Kew Gardens (I do believe) the BEST helis they grew were set next to misting bottles- the "rule" was, if you walk past them, you MUST shoot them with a few squirts from the bottle- it makes perfect sense, as it must be silly humid on the Tepuis
hmmmmm..... i ended up not using the stone and air pump.. i found i didnt need it.. instead i got a pet place mat (it has raised edges), and put an upside down water bottle with a smalle hole in the lid.... i found it works perfectly... never falls below 65%, even with the door open... and usually is about 80%
