I don't think that goes far enough. You would also need to unplug the ethernet, disable the wifi, and unplug the power cord.

And if it is a laptop/phone, remove battery. If you can't remove battery, tannerite.

There are still passive circuits to consider. Like RFD, these need no internal power, they derive their energy from the radio signal itself.

Only safe option is thermite.

Yeah, well, zeroing out the drive first still sounds like a good idea, to remove any microsoft taint still lurking there!

Uninstall it. Your hardware still comes with an ID though.
