Why are Tall Tubular batteries are priced high than Tubular Batteries?

Tall battery have warranty of 3 years and tubular of 2 and half years.

For example, I have 2 option for an inverter battery, but cant judge which to add with the inverter.

    \$\begingroup\$ "Tall battery have warranty of 3 years and tubular of 2 and half years" could mean that the "tall" version is made to last longer or undergoes more thorough testing. \$\endgroup\$ – Andrew Morton Jul 23 '18 at 8:39

I am using both short tubular and tall tubular batteries. The difference I found that the tall tubular batteries' life is longer than the short tubular. On an average a short tubular battery lasts for 6-8 years while a tall tubular battery lasts for 8-10 years. The backup time and charging time is quite the same.
