The instructions for priming Mangrove Jacks cider says

23 batch size

1 carbonation drop per 350 ml bottle or 2 for a 750 ml bottle

they say each drop is equal to 1/2 teaspoon of sugar

I use grolsch bottles ( 475 ml ) for my beer and bulk prime

depending of the FG

for 1012 use 140g dextrose

for 1010 use 160g dextrose

for 1006 use 180g dextrose

these are old Grumpy's recommendations

The suggested FG for the cider is 1007 +/- 2

Looks like 170g for the cider all things being equal

I just use 7g/L, which agrees roughly with your quantity.

If it's the new Pouch kit? I can say that these benefit from higher carbonation, especially the Pear Cider.
