I needed a extended battery for My HF G50. I purchased a Watson extended battery and
a watson 2 place charger.
For some reason I have ended up with a non working watson battery due to
pins getting bent on the watson battery.
General practice for battery placement on camera or inserting into the
charger is an ever so slightly slide with a gentle wiggle to insert it. on
camera or charger. Never forceful.
I'm curious if its the charger that bent the battery pins , or the camera battery
docking plate, Or a poorly made aftermarket battery...
Anyone else have this happen ?

Watson is my go to aftermarket brand. While getting a defective part is possible, pins don't just bend on their own.
Unless it came damaged, there is only one way the pins got bent. Maybe you should contact Watson and see what they say.
Watson batteries have a 1 yr warranty:
