They are basically just compacted sugar and work fine. I usually use 2 per 500mL bottle when the brew has fermented dry. Had better results with beer, in my experience, ciders take a bit more to carb than beer.
They have no effect on flavour.
They alone will not cause bottle bombs, active yeast with plenty of sugar to eat cause bottle bombs. The carb drops are just the priming sugar, any form of sugar used for priming can aid bombs.
