I call BS - Have y'all heard of this?? - - ETA answers to questions

I have had an exchange via text for a few days now with a man, and during this time I have noticed that a few times he seemed a little immature in his messages as well as "needy" or "clingy" to a certain extent.  I have been overlooking it for the most part. 

Today, I was busy all afternoon with work and cooking and went about 3-1/2 hours without texting him back when he sent a very childish text "I guess you're done with me now..."

It was another hour or so before I saw it and I answered by telling him what I'd been up to, and asked why did he sent me a text like that?  He texted back that he wants me to tell him what it said.  I asked him "You deleted the messages?" 

He says "My battery was getting low so deleted.  It helps if not stored."

I call bull marlarky.... Have any of y'all ever heard of that before, that deleting messages makes your battery die less quickly?? 


ETA: 

Yes, we have met, not just talked/texted - We met this past Saturday through several mutual friends, and yes, we have talked on the phone a few times as well.  It just so happened that the majority of our communication since Sunday has been via text. 

...and I have made the wise decision to nip this in the bud - no more communication.  Thanks everyone for all your replies and insight :)

I couldn't get past this part:

WHY are you still talking with someone like this?  The very first description of him you give is he is immature, needy and clingy.  Is that really what you want to get into?

And, now, you are questioning what he is telling you.  Get rid of him!

He is psychotic, carrying this on any further WILL result in him hurting you physically. Cut this one loose before he kills you, literally.
