I ave never used them. They contain DME, sugar, and heading compound.
For cider I'd rather use 5 oz corn sugar by wt. Simple and cleaner.
I keep them on hand only as a repair for bottling defects or really small batches that make bulk priming impractile.
Use sugar or cornsugar.... http://hbd.org/cgi-bin/recipator/recipator/carbonation.html?9776246#tag
Cider is not listed but find a carb rate you like and use the proper sugar. DME is for better head rentention. Should not be an issue in your case if you're talking cider.
