45-55% according to Digi Cabi instructions. However someone succesfully argued somewhere in CS that there isn't any "minumum value" as the lens lubricants aren't water based. I think most people (including myself) still tend to keep around 50% though.

Just keep it between 45-55%.

30% is really too low, unless you want to keep chinese medical herbs!

You need a minimum of 40%, otherwise the lubricants in your lenses will dry up.
