Default Caps dimensions

Hi guys,
recently I bought 2200 uF 25V and 16V caps. I didn't pay attention on the dimension when ordering and I noticed that 25V caps have much bigger diameter than 16V. I can see that there are completely the same rated caps (capacitance, voltage, temperature) but different sizes (length, diammeter).
I know that the biggest advantage of the smaller ones is the space they occupy on the PCB. I wonder if bigger size caps (same parameters) have longer life span? What is their advantage?

Default Re: Caps dimensions

please read the datasheet about working hours.4
Within the same series, often a larger diameter means more operating hours
